1 key in keyring:

A rerun of add_key won't help, the output is:

Enter passphrase (echo disabled):
Added key with descriptor [d3b38182555bb6e2]
Added key with descriptor [9d459d03fd3b3adb]
Key with descriptor [9d459d03fd3b3adb] applied to /var/lib/tor.

Accessing the directory works for the user /which has not a login shell):
ssh 'sudo -u tor touch /var/lib/tor/'

And it doesn't work run add_key for user root.

Furthermore it starts to fail even after 1 or 2 days.
