Troll Mode on:
TOR was originally developed as a result of CIA/NRL funding:)
compile your own client and examine sources if you have this particular
brand of paranoia(I do)
change to an OS which makes this easy ...
BTW running TOR makes you very visible that you are running tor even as
a client.. its quite a noisy protocol

Seems to me there's a couple of possibilities for a TLA or someone
else to monitor Tor users. Tor clients purchased online or whatever
could possibly signal a monitoring agency for when and possibly where
the user is online. This would mean that at bootup, some surreptitious
packets could be fired off.
The problem here is that a clever TLA might be able to hide its POP
behind the Tor network, so merely checking on IP addresses on outgoing
packets wouldn't work.
Can anyone recommend a nice little package that can be used to check
for unusual packets leaving my machine through the tor client?
