Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

I'm not able to reproduce this problem in either 1.71 or 1.72. When you say "I was trying to test a port", do you mean this crash happened after pressing the "Test Port" button in Edit > Preferences > Network? Also, is this something that happens every time for you?

I'm not able to reproduce this, but after reading through the retrace I'm pretty sure I see what's going on. In short there is an idle callback func that's invoked when we find out the incoming peer port's status, and that callback needs to get a gdk thread lock before it modifies any of the preference dialogs' widgets.

I've fixed this bug upstream in r8757 for 1.73 and am marking this ticket as "Fix Committed". ComputerJy, you might want to update from the Transmission nightly build PPA to confirm.
