Bug Description

When I click on a magnet link, I get the usual dialogue box in Ktorrent with the link showing and then click on 'OK', after that, nothing happens.

I expect Ktorrent to show me another window with a list of the contents of the torrent. It does not.

I have tried using different browsers, Firefox & Chrome and I get the same result - Ktorrent doesn't handle the magnet link properly. I have even tried it on different computers running the same desktop and version of Ktorrent, I get the same result.

I'm using Kubuntu 16.04LTS
Ktorrent Version 4.3.1 (4.14.22)
