In #3049, an __OwningControllerProcess option and a TAKEOWNERSHIP control-port command were added to Tor. Tor Browser Bundles should use these options to avoid leaving an uncontrollable orphan Tor process running.

What remains here? It sounds like we need to ship a torrc+Vidalia conf using the option in TBB, right? I'm reassigning this to the bundles component for that.

Vidalia takes ownership of the tor process if it starts it, it doesn't otherwise. You don't have to configure anything (unless I missunderstood the feature).

So I think we are done with this.
