Thanks, Switeck. Giving v low pri/choking is essentially what I meant. BTW, a "Transmission" client is on one of my peer lists again, it's one of the offenders, and it's version is shown as 0.72Z (letter 'Z'). Since you're a moderator, I'll leave it to you to pass on the message to the uT programming team. (Later) I Googled for Transmission, and came up with pay dirt in a transmission.m0k.org forum article, where member Charles Kerr, one of the program's developers, states his piece-fetching priorities. See http://transmission.m0k.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1950&highlight=first If the article is no longer online when/if you need it, I have kept a copy.
