Two possible solutions are:
1) tell vidalia to connect to the already running instance of tor-I can't figure out if this is possible.
2) keep /etc/rc/d/rc/tor executable but stop it from being loaded on boot-exploring this option but not there yet.
Any advice or comments appreciated!
OK, just figured out that /etc/rc,d/rc.tor is only relevant for boot time starting of tor. Vidalia can start tor when rc.tor is -x. Seems blindly obvious now that I think about it.
