Comment (by mcs):

 Kathy and I were apparently lucky; our installation paths are fairly

 The longest Unix domain socket path that can be used on Linux is 108
 bytes. See:

 On OSX, it is even shorter at 104 bytes:

 Should we be placing the sockets in /tmp instead of in the tor data
 directory? I think we would need to create a subdirectory with
 sufficiently restrictive permissions (tor does some permission checks).
