So I no longer remembered what exactly the "right thing" is supposed to be. Let me try to summarize:

  • When a stream fails, or a resolve fails or gives us a weird answer, we should maybe retry on a different exit. Right now we just close the stream.
  • We do not want to mark the whole circuit as invalid, or else any user who types "localhost" will cycle through circuits till they run out of retries. We don't want to mark the exit as invalid, or any user who types "localhost" will soon run out of exits.

The current close-the-stream behavior does not seem to be causing problems in practice AFAICT. So I'm going to move this to the "unspecified" milestone. We should revisit that decision if this someday turns out to cause problems.
