ctorrent fails to parse large .torrent files

Bug #1350215 reported by Volodymyr Kuznetsov

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ctorrent (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

ctorrent currently limits the .torrent file size to 4MB and fails with the following error on all larger files:

"error, "test.torrent" is really a metainfo file???"

We use ctorrent within our organization to deploy very large VM image files (~70GB) to multiple nodes within the cluster. The 4MB size limitation is too strict for this use-case. The attached patch increases this limit to 16MB (should be applied to ctorrent 1.3.4dnh3.3.2 as found in Ubuntu 14.04).
