I see a bunch bugs with 'make test-network' when nss is turned on. Better fix them.

One example:

Upon investigation, it would appear this is related to RunAsDaemon.

Fix in nss_27664 was much simpler than I had feared. PR at https://github.com/torproject/tor/pull/326. I tested this along with #27451.
