Description

Regardless of whether transparency proxy is enabled or not, all foreign iptables rules get flushed when connecting or disconnecting to/from Tor.

Iptables chains stay untouched.

This is a big problem when using iptables based firewalls like "DroidWall" or "LBE Privacy Guard".

Example 1:
A internet access blocked application (a game, google location service, etc.) gets unblocked as soon as Orbot connects/disconnects to Tor.

Example 2:
A application should just be able to communicate through Tor. iptables related firewall blocks it. But Orbot's transparency proxy should allow it.

This still occures on the latest RC build:
"Orbot-1.0.6-Tor-0.2.3.7-alpha-RC3"
