Wow! Thanks for so much advice from the list.

<FWIW, FYI>
Everybody said to get rid of privoxy, so I did -- there was no privoxy
on the machine Tor was on, but there was on the server across the room
that this machine has no business talking to, except to send and fetch
email. But that somehow seems to have made Tor start working again. I
don't quite believe that getting rid of privaxy over there had
anything to do with this machine. Maybe the Tor network was just a
little bent or something the other day.

Anyway, if you can read this, Gmail's running again on Tor. Tor's a
little laid back this afternoon -- enough that Google whined about the
speed. But that's what I expected. Somebody in Gondwanaland's on a
dialup.
</FWIW, /FYI>

To those concerned about the 'G' word, I'm using Gmail while I get the
domain working again. I just moved, and things aren't yet what they
have been. Email claims to be up, but I don't quite trust it yet.

Thanks again for all the help. It seems to be doing  OK with just the
vanilla Aptitude install. No SOCKS, no reinstall; just no privoxy (on
the other side of the room).
