Those two torrents aren't exactly downloading quickly in BT but in UT they're pretty much stuck even after trying hours later. Just had to scrap the whole thing and start over. Now it's stuck at 'downloading metadata'. WTH. I think UT isn't doing something BT can.
Edit - Ok, I paused the other two torrents for a while that aren't having problems. Now one of the stuck torrents started to run, but the other is still stuck. I think I'm gonna have to observe this for a while.
Anybody here also having trouble with BT or UT trying to check the downloaded parts every time you start the app? 7.8 seems to indicate it has a fix for the problem but I don't think it was really fixed. Plus, I've been using 7.7 since October of last year and this is the first time this has happened. Not sure if it's just bad luck that I ran into a torrent download that would make BT go nuts.

It's not THAT bloated either. I think I can spare 30MB of my 8GB.
