Answers that won't go on the FAQ

Why does Tor 0.0.9pre5 take 6 times as long to start as 0.0.9pre4 and earlier?

Because while we were replacing strncpy with strlcpy for security reasons, the Tor developers (okay, it was me) neglected to think of the fact that strlcpy is much slower when the length of the string to be copied exceeds the length of the part we want to copy.

Only one of these calls appears to have been performance critical--the one in tor_strndup. I've moved it back to using strncpy.

I'm not putting this on the FAQ, because this is basically a bug report, not a FAQ.

(By the way, there are better places to report bugs like this: emailing the developers, or the or-dev mailing list, or the or-talk mailing list are all good ideas.) - NM
