nohup & bittorrent-console problem


I have been using bittorrent-console with "nohup" without a problem so far(nohup bittorrent-console torrentname.torrent &). But the issue is, I don't know how to properly close bittorrent-console. I usually just do "Kill -s Kill TorrentID" which is from what I gather is a bad way of closing the app. Bittorrent-console doesn't send the information about how much I downloaded and uploaded to the server . I was wondering how you guys handle this.

If you just do 'killall bittorrent-console' it shouldn't cause a problem because it'll just send a kill signal to the app and it can then shutdown gracefully. Doing like a 'kill -9' would cause problems because that is just like kicking the app in the head so it stops. Has it actually caused problems for you or are you just sort of looking for a better way?
