Frequent vidalia log error

Sometimes a www is added to an .onion address causing:

"One of your applications tried to establish a connection through tor to "www.xy.onion", which Tor does not recognize as a valid hostname. Please check your application's configuration."

Noticed it several times, browser bundle for linux, version

how's that?

It's a Firefox bug. Firefox responds to some errors by prepending “www.” to the hostname and trying again.
