ExitNodes 1 being ignored

Using Tor Browser Bundle 2.3.25-6 and 2.3.25-8 (Windows)

Have placed the following settings in the torrc file:

ExitNodes {SE}
StrictNodes 1

Older versions of Tor would simply not connect (and give me error messages in the Vidalia message log) when it could not find a suitable exit node. However 2.3.25-6 has given me non-SE exit nodes frequently. I used it as an excuse to upgrade to 2.3.25-8 but am experiencing the exact same thing.

I had no problem with previous versions (sorry, already deleted older bundle so cannot verify the older version that used to work) where it would simply refuse to connect - at least I would know that a suitable exit node could not be found. But ignoring this setting seems dangerous. Any ideas?

I wonder if the bundles have the geoip file set up correctly?

(I wonder if Tor should break more obviously if you set a country code in one of the torrc options, but it can't find a geoip file. (Or maybe it does already?))

I suggest closing this one, since any number of fixes and re-packagings have happened since the bug report.

Please open a new ticket if there is still an issue here.
