#3517 closed Bug (fixed)

Magnet links paused after inactive seed time

Component: libtransmission Version: 2.04+

Cc: magnet, pause, inactive, limit


If you begin downloading from a magnet link, and you set a 'stop seeding after' time, which the download of the metadata exceeds, the magnet will be paused and it will claim seeding has finished.

  1. Begin downloading a torrent via a magnet link.
  2. Set the inactivity seeding limit to 1 minute.
  3. Observe the torrent does not count down the time until seeding stops (because it shouldn't stop) but:
  4. Observe that after one minute, the magnetised torrent has paused itself.

This should not happen, as the magnet link has not yet retrieved any data - it's not in the seeding phase. This is a particularly annoying bug as it keeps pausing any torrents I start that don't acquire their metadata in time.

(From IRC:) BentMyWookie?: hmmm, confirmed

This should be fixed in r11181. It was pausing all transfers, even downloading non-magnet transfers.
