bug: restart of sdwdate in Whonix-Gateway causes 100% CPU use of Tor Browser in Whonix-Workstation

I suspect it is this:

  • Tor Browser is running on one machine and talking to Tor on another machine.
  • When time is changed using date on another machine, Tor Browser starts to use 100% CPU.

Still not “really” a Whonix issue. Also not “really” an sdwdate issue. It still needs to be reproduced without mentioning Whonix / sdwdate as a general bug and then reported against Tor Project trac component Tor Browser.

Help welcome.
