Thank you for reporting this issue and helping to make Transmission better. Unfortunately, at this point this is more of a tech support request than a ticket, and some of your questions are better handled by Ubuntu gurus than by Transmission devs. Transmission doesn't have any magic juju to make itself unkillable, so that is definitely something that might be better asked in the Ubuntu forums.

Second, the version of Transmission that ships with 11.04 is 2.13, which is no longer supported -- the latest version is 2.42. I don't know of an official source for 2.42 on Natty, but seems to have packages.

Third, you may want to visit #transmission on freenode or the Transmission forums and get someone to walk you through how to profile Transmission at runtime (after upgrading to 2.42! ;) so that we can see what's taking up 98% of your CPU.
