Hi Nathan,

I've run into a small problem with the latest Orbot build of Tor. It
runs fine on most devices, but on the Huawei U8110 (Android 2.1, API
level 7), Tor exits immediately with exit code 255. If I recompile
using the old openssl-static submodule at version 0.9.8h instead of
the openssl submodule at version 1.0.1e, Tor works fine. However, that
involves checking out an earlier version of the Orbot repo (commit
468076) and then upgrading the libevent and tor submodules, so I can't
be sure it's OpenSSL that's causing the problem, rather than something
in the build process.

I can't tell whether this affects Orbot, because the phone is too old
to run it (minimum API level is 9) - I'm reporting it just in case
someone runs into a similar problem on an Orbot-capable phone.

Cheers,
Michael
