[Tor-BSD] jump in NTor handshakes

Over the past few days I've noticed a huge jump in NTor handshakes on
NYCBUG1.  This is a recent 'heartbeat' log entry:

Feb 04 11:17:27.000 [notice] {HEARTBEAT} Circuit handshake stats since
last time: 4454/4454 TAP, 21495/21495 NTor.

NYCBUG0 has been marked as a guard a while back, but it's only recently
that either type of handshake has exceeded 5000.

Just from a quick browse of the logs, TAP handshakes hit 9254 yesterday
while NTor's high seems to be 21495.

Judging from atlas.torproject.org, it doesn't look like there's a
significant bandwidth jump that would reflect this.


Note: advertised bandwidth has been set to 2.11MB/sec for a long while.

Anyone else notice a recent jump in handshakes?
