need to set this if it's the same as -proxy. You can use -notor
to explicitly disable access to hidden service.
-dnsseed DNS seeds are not resolved directly when a SOCKS5 proxy server is
set. Rather, a short-lived proxy connection to the dns seed
hostname is attempted, and peer addresses are requested.
-listen When using -proxy, listening is disabled by default. If you want
to run a hidden service (see next section), you'll need to enable
it explicitly.

Locking/mutex usage notes
The code is multi-threaded, and uses mutexes and the
CRITICAL_BLOCK/TRY_CRITICAL_BLOCK macros to protect data structures.

How to Upgrade
--------------
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait
until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older
versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over
/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).
If you were running on Linux with a version that might have been compiled
with a different version of Berkeley DB (for example, if you were using an
Ubuntu PPA version), then run the old version again with the -detachdb
argument and shut it down; if you do not, then the new version will not
be able to read the database files and will exit with an error.
