miscellaneous stream event bugs for DNS requests

The response to a reverse lookup from the controller looks like:

650 ADDRMAP REVERSE[] "2008-03-29 21:59:05" EXPIRES="2008-03-29 21:59:05"

Except when the result is already cached. Then it looks like:

650 ADDRMAP "2008-03-29 21:59:05" EXPIRES="2008-03-29 21:59:05"

The 'REVERSE' is missing. Not sure which way is the 'correct' way - assume it's the non-cached response.


  • There's currently no 'NEW' stream event for DNS requests. Add one.
  • Cached reverse DNS requests get a 'CLOSE' event but no 'NEW' event. Just drop the 'CLOSE' event, since no conn is created.

These issues look important to fix. However, I worry about having socks->address change its value
once it's initially set. Why does the patch have to change the address back from REVERSE[x] to x
before calling mark_unattached_ap?

Hi Nick,

None that I can remember or establish now. I think I just didn't want to call mark_unattached with a modified
conn->socks_request->address that wasn't a valid IP address or URI. It doesn't seem to make any difference in practice.
