Dear Paul,

thanks for the bug report.

It looks like you chose not to install tor’s recommended tor-geoipdb package. I can reproduce this issue if I manually remove tor-geoipdb on my system. Making tor-geoipdb (and hence tor itself) a dependency of onioncircuits would remedy this, but I feel that it might be worthwhile to make onioncircuits itself a bit more robust if geoipdb is missing. 
I have created a patch to check for this error (see attached) and will forward it upstream.
Also, I’ll make onioncircuits suggest tor-geoipdb. Any comments?
