Torrent Client(s) crashing


Hey guys, hoping somebody can point me in the right direction. Since going to Ubuntu 13.10 I'm having issues with torrent clients freezing shortly after launch. I've tried Deluge (which I prefer) qtbittorrent, vuze etc. They all install fine, but then I get the force close/wait box. I've tried installing from the default repos, the mfg's PPA's, dl direct from the websites everything. Same issue, every client I try. When I was running Mint 13 it all worked. I've also cleared all the old config files when I uninstall just to make sure that's not it. Any ideas?

I use transmission-gtk in conjunction with Ubuntu 13 and it works fine. As far as the force close/wait; if you click the X to close a window the torrent client will still take the time to shut down it's connections with peers; however I think in that case the XServer or display manager will see that some time has expired and the application hasn't shut down, so it puts up that announcement. And if you ignore the announcement and just wait for the sessions to be closed out, the torrent client will close, unless there's some other problem. To not end up with that problem, if you exit the torrent client using it's menu; like File->Exit(Quit), the display manager will then not know that the application is exiting and it won't put up the force close/wait box.

Is that what you consider to be a crash? The face that a force close/wait box comes up? Do you wait some time to allow the client to close out it's peer sessions? Obviously the more active torrent sessions you have running, this will impact overall performance and further take a bit more time to resolve the sessions and shut it down. I do know (because I also run this on an ATOM laptop - not the fastest CPU) that if my torrents or Firefox are doing a lot, my whole XDM can grey out windows until a high activity time clears up.

For anybody reading this, it narrowed it down to ONLY being an issue when running through my proxy. Never had a problem in the past but oh well. The solution was to update my libtorrent from this PPA ppa:surfernsk/internet-software now it works everytime. I wished I looked at was I was running before, but either way it's working now!

Thanks, but transmission doesn't support proxies which I need. When I got the force quit/wait Deluge would never recover from it. I noticed your from Milford, hello then fellow Masshole! (Jamaica Plain / Roslindale)
