"Authenticating to Tor" step takes very long when network window is open

Description

stopping tor and restarting it usually is a very quick process, because all the relevant documents are already cached etc. When the network window is opened this step takes a very long time while the flags are fetched/updated tho, and display of Tor's activity is delayed.

Replying to Sebastian:

Starting tor is very slow, when the tor server is not local. Vidalia retieves data from the server very slowly and it lasts several minutes before Vidalia is ready.
This should be improved.

The problem here was discovered by arma, it has to do with the events, and the fact that tor sends the bootstrap event before Vidalia can see it, so it stucks waiting in the "Authenticating to Tor" step until the next event is emitted. This was solved in #4827.
