Humor here is that there's no duckduckgo.com:f8eec91c48081a9f5e106fd83d0422f6 circuit (and never was), and it timed out without switching circuits.

What gives you the impression that there was no circuit related to this username/password combination? And this is new with 7.5a9 or does this happen with earlier versions as well?

Looks like a consequence of #21969. That explains "there was no circuit related to this username/password combination" and "timed out waiting for circuit". The questions are:

  1. Why does tor report its timeout as timeout of duckduckgo.com?
  2. Would Torbutton switch circuits otherwise?

BTW, it still happens with tor 0.3.2.9.

Keywords: needs-proposal added

#16844 and #21969 have conflicting goals, so we need to write a proposal that balances these goals. See #30817.
