Description

Linux Mandriva 2010.2 32 bit
kde 4.5.5
qt 4.7.1
vidalia 0.2.9

vidalia uses "current user" id to manage tor
but
the owner of tor is "toruser"
then
you can't manage tor
you can start, stop, modify settings
because you have no right to start, stop tor
you have no right to modify /etc/tor/torrc
etc.

Vidalia cannot run itself in whatever user account a Unix-like system happens to launch Tor in, nor can it modify the permissions of Tor's configuration file when a Unix-like system runs Tor as a daemon.
