Tor running on Ubuntu, configured by Vidalia to be a relay (but it couldn't save the torrc since it's owned by root), gets hupped and reverts to its default torrc file. Shortly after, it triggers an assert:

1 05 07:56:50.367 [Notice] Received reload signal (hup). Reloading config and resetting internal state.
1 05 07:56:50.447 [Notice] Closing no-longer-configured OR listener on

1 05 07:57:20.759 [Error] get_server_identity_key(): Bug: router.c:164: get_server_identity_key: Assertion server_mode(get_options()) failed; aborting.

This reminds me of #2235 but apparently it's different.

Reported by 'Davis' on #tor. I've asked him to set up his tor for cores, and get us a bt when it happens again.

See #4833 for the corresponding Vidalia bug, which is that Vidalia doesn't tell Tor that sighup shouldn't overwrite the changes it made but couldn't save.

Calling this "needs_information" ; it'll need clever investigation, or a core.
