DEBUG:stem:Unable to download descriptors from 'None' (10 retries remaining): Cell of type RELAY is too large (4031 bytes), must not be more than 512. Check payload size (was 4028 bytes)

It probably should also not be saying 'None' there in the error message.

I just went to try to reproduce this and I can't. ):

I'm not actually able to make any download successfully over an ORPort though, I'm just getting this error over and over now:

>>> from stem import ORPort
>>> from stem.descriptor.remote import get_consensus
>>> tor26 = ORPort("", 443)
>>> get_consensus(endpoints=[tor26])
