Summary0004801: transport crashes if it accidentally connects to itself
DescriptionIf transport receives a SYN message from its own peer ID it crashes on:
ERROR Assertion failed at gnunet-service-transport_neighbours.c:2144

  GNUNET_assert (0 !=
                 memcmp (&GST_my_identity,
                         sizeof (struct GNUNET_PeerIdentity)));
Steps To Reproduce1) Accidentally run gnunet-service-transport as root instead of gnunet so it generates a new ID and HELLO
2) Until that new HELLO expires your peer is poisoned and will try to connect to itself thinking it is connecting to the new peer
3) It will send a SYN to itself, then receive its own SYN
4) The peer ID in the SYN matches its own and the assertion fails
TagsNo tags attached.

Seems fixed, added additional logic to really guard against it in 723fb1483..e332f0f54
