I'm trying to set up Bitcoin (standard client) with Tor. I know alot of people do it so I figured it would be easy, but something doesn't seem right. I've it it to use 127.0.0.1:9050, but it still has connections when Tor isn't running. Not very many connections, but surely there shouldn't be any. What's going on?

This question will be answered more quickly on a tor support forums.

I don't think so, this really doesn't have anything to do with Tor itself, since it isn't running. Let me put it another way. I configure the Bitcoin client to use a proxy that does not exist, yet it still reports connections. How is this possible?
