I should add that localtime (which is in the logs) is Sat Dec 15 21:22:08 CET 2007.

Further, first it does not appear before 9. Dec.

Dec 09 19:02:51.225 [notice] We tried for 15 seconds to connect to '[scrubbed]' using exit 'DonRiebe'. Retrying on a new circuit.
Dec 09 19:44:37.057 [notice] Have tried resolving or connecting to address '[scrubbed]' at 3 different places. Giving up.
Dec 09 22:09:41.729 [notice] We're missing a certificate from authority tor26 with signing key 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000: launching request.

Finally, it just spews out these lines for about an hour every day, then it stops again and waits until the next day.

Ah. This was not the hard bug that I thought it was. It turned out to be an easy one, I think.

It was triggered by the fact that when authorities are missynchronized, one or more of them might not sign
a given consensus. When this happens, the consensus lists that authority as a valid voter, but does not
include a signature from that voter. Lack of signature corresponds internally to having a signing key
digest of "00000...". Tor was mistakenly believing that instead of *no* signature, this represented
a signature from an unrecognized signing key.

This should be fixed by r13018.
