Torrc file does not appear within the GUI from clicking "Edit current torrc"

The Tor configuration file should, as is logically suggested from the Vidalia GUI, be brought up for editing when one clicks "Edit current torrc". It does not. There is just a blank. One has to edit the file manually.

This is because TorControl is not connected - so we can not retrieve current "config-file".

The question is: when TorControl is not connected should we bring up the file which is selected in "Advanced page"?

I think this is a better option than a blank dialog box.

The main issue I see is if Tor is running but Vidalia hasn't been allowed to control it. The user will be able to edit torrc (assuming correct permissioning) but the Tor instance won't be updated unless the user sends sighup. I don't think this is a particularly frequent case we need to worry about, though, considering the user should be able to easily recognize when Vidalia isn't connected to Tor.
