[SOLVED] ktorrent crashes; where to get more info?

I'm a verry happy Gentoo/KDE user, and I'm used to download my "stuff" with KTorrent. Last week KTorrent crashed, and now I cannot get it to start anymore... the bouncing cursor appears, and than the app just terminates.

When calling KTorrent from the CLI the cli answers:

$ ktorrent
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'bt::Error' ERROR: Communication problem with ktorrent, it probably crashed.
KCrash: Application 'ktorrent' crashing...
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.
The problem doesn't appear when logged in as root.

Does anyone have a solution for this? Or at least knows where I can find the cause of the problem?

I had a similar issue with firefox i deleted the config files from my user home directory and restarted the session and it worked again fine. This may work for you.

Your config files are located in /home/~user/.<app-name> .

You shuld probably back them up somewhere else incase you wish to reinstate them if this doesn't work for you.

Thanks... I think the problem was a running turrent being currupted after the first crash. Removing the temp. torrent from ~/.kde/share/apps/ktorrent/ did the trick.
