First I would upgrade to the latest version of Ktorrent(2.2.6) to see if that resolves my problem. Try using Ktorrent without routing it via tor. Using tor for your torrents is not good for the tor network.

My apologies I assumed you were using the tor anonymous routing network to download, I now realise the tor in this instance is short for torrent.

Yes you can update ktorrent via the package manager synaptic. Before you do so, I suggest you hit the reload button, then hit the mark all upgrades button and continue from there.

You only need to reboot after an upgrade to use the new kernel that gets installed. If you only want to upgrade ktorrent, then hit the reload button don't bother with the mark all upgrades button, instead hit the search button and enter ktorrent in the search box then select it for install.

Have you tried it again? Another thing you could do instead of upgrading is to configure ktorrent to limit the amount of connections that are used. By default it is set to zero limit.

Which filesystem are you using? How many open files can you have according to the "ulimit" command? If you have the "sysconf" command, try "sysconf(OPEN_MAX)" or "sysconf(SC_OPEN_MAX)".

note: For some reason, the route to google.analytics & cachfly.net doesn't complete so I didn't get an "Edit" button to correct my previous post.
