vidalia yellow, tor connected, firefox not launched

Description

i get this behaviour maybe 1 in 10 times.
1) i type start-tor-browser
2) vidalia comes up and completes almost everything (log attached)
3) no sign of firefox.

i can work around it every time by hitting Stop Tor in vidalia, then Start Tor.

is there a way to get more debugging info out of TBB ?

lubuntu 12.04 x64
tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.2.39-5-dev-en-US.tar.gz
(but it has happened with all previous tbb iirc)

Did you also restart at "Dec 03 20:18:26.829"?

I assume this is more of a Vidalia bug, too. Does there seem to be any consistency as to why Tor Browser isn't launch or is it a 'random' 1 in 10 chance that it doesn't launch?

Replying to sysrqb:

Did you also restart at "Dec 03 20:18:26.829"?

I started the computer around 20:00 and then TBB at the above time. Oops those are two overlapping logs appended in what i attached: i saved the log after vidalia sat there for 20 minutes, then i saved it again after restarting Tor and it appended the full sesson (start + restart) instead of overwriting the file.

I assume this is more of a Vidalia bug, too. Does there seem to be any consistency as to why Tor Browser isn't launch or is it a 'random' 1 in 10 chance that it doesn't launch?

The only consistency i've noticed is that there is no indication in the logs or process list that anything was wrong or that firefox was started. Not sure where else i could look for traces.
