Description

Migrated from old trac:
"In Vidalia 0.1.4, part of the Tor Bundle 0.2.0.28-rc on Windows XP Home Edition, if "AllowInvalidNodes?" options are set, and such a node is used in a circuit, Vidalia will display the circuit in the Tor Network Map window.

Previously (0.1.3), when a circuit with an invalid node is clicked on, information on all the nodes, even if only to state that a node was Offline, would appear to the right of the circuit list.

However, in the current version (0.1.4), if a circuit with an invalid node is clicked on, Vidalia will ignore the invalid node, displaying information only on valid nodes. This can lead to, for example, a circuit clearly showing three nodes, with only two of the nodes described on the right.

While it may be reasonable to remove invalid/offline nodes from the list on the left side of the Tor Network Map, if such a node is used in a circuit, Vidalia should still display the network's opinion as to if the node is valid or not, and where the node's geographic location is."

I'm not sure if this is still valid though.
