Confusing messages output by having VirtualAddrNetwork range which includes TransListenAddress/DNSListenAddress within it

When configuring tor as a transparent proxy I mistakenly used a VirtualAddrNetwork range of (which is what I was using for the 'local' network which was to be proxied over tor). I also configured TransListenAddress and DNSListenAddress to both have an address of (the ip of the host which belongs to the tor proxy gateway). When I attempted to start Tor I was informed that I had an invalid configuration. The warning messages printed before the configuration failure line warned me about TransListenAddress and DNSListenAddress not being configured to listen on localhost. Tor should have warned me that my configuration was not likely to work due to TransListenAddress/DNSListenAddress address being contained within the VirtualAddrNetwork address range.

Can you provide more details so it's easier to figure out what's going on here? What were your torrc lines, what did you do, what did you expect, what log lines did you get, etc.

(rather than reproducing what you did, instead try to produce the simplest possible situation that triggers your bug.)
