I'm from Germany so English isn't my native language. Please excuse if there are any difficulties understanding me.

Well, I've been using the vidalia bundle for quite a time, both on my laptop and pc.
A week ago some troubles with my pc-vidalia have started.
Vidalia (and Tor) started, but I couldn't use, all I got were the no connection error-message when I tried to load a homepage.

I updated to the version today but the error stayed the same.

Here are the lines from the log I believe to be important.

Jan 05 19:22:46.456 [Hinweis] Tor v0.1.2.18. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity.
Jan 05 19:22:46.476 [Hinweis] Initialized libevent version 1.3e using method win32. Good.
Jan 05 19:22:46.476 [Hinweis] Opening Socks listener on
Jan 05 19:22:46.476 [Hinweis] Opening Control listener on
Jan 05 19:22:51.143 [Warnung] Received directory with skewed time (server ''): we are 43197 minutes ahead, or the directory is 43197 minutes behind.
Jan 05 19:22:51.143 [Hinweis] I learned some more directory information, but not enough to build a circuit.
Jan 05 19:23:00.887 [Hinweis] Application request when we're believed to be offline. Optimistically trying directory fetches again.

I use Windows XP, Firefox, the Vidalia-Bundle with Tor-Button.
Please help me, I tried to find some information my self, but couldn't help it.
Thanks a lot,

Your system's clock is wrong. (It's not January.)

Closing as not-a-bug.

Also, the error messages for this have gotten better. Current svn versions would say instead:

"It seems that our clock is ahead by 29 days, or theirs is behind. Tor requires an accurate clock to work:

please check your time and date settings."
