tor- is loading the contents of ClientOnionAuthDir twice on startup. This is occurring on Win32; I don't know about other platforms.

I learnt this indirectly because Tor complains twice about the bunch of private files whose extensions are invalid. Possibly this is not visible unless you have invalid files. And possibly the valid entries are not loaded twice, but once then overriden, but still.

Yes this is normal because Tor has a "configuration validation" phase and then once it is consider valid, we end up in the "configuration loading" phase.

This is to support the tor --verify-config feature.
