anything running under WINE can be a bit precarious.

I suggest using AZUREUS

It will run natively on linux as long as you have JRE (Java Run Time Environment) installed.

for the torrent you are just choosing where to save the file



it can be slow depending on the number of seeds

Azureus is a great app but its up tons of ram ....
If you don't care for fancy graphics just try ctorrent a cli client for the bittorrent network
