ktorrent – UI Becomes Unresponsive

Bug Description

When starting up any torrent the UI for the application will become unresponsive for periods of time. Most of the time the UI will recover from this state, but no crash occurs and there is no trace I can provide at this time. Using the System Activity window to view ktorrents process list will occasionally show that one of the ktorrent process has entered a zombied state. I use KTorrent to seed some ISOs, but if I choose to download something new this issue can make it almost unusable. I'm willing to take any steps as directed to provide some useful information on this bug and will continue to work to track down the issue with maintainers/developers.

Apologies, I forgot to mention my platform information. I'm running Kubuntu Wily on an amd64 w/8Gb RAM and 1GB Swap on an SSD and on NVidia GTX 750 GPU with desktop effects enabled.

This topic covers this issue. The 1TB SATA HDD I save data to from torrents is attached to the PC using an X-Dock slot; essentially removable media for 3.25" and 2.5" drives. The board they plug into are wired out to the motherboard. See:

The /Storage partition is the location I use when torrenting anything.
