  1. b28965 and both problems seems to be fixed, so good job and thanks
  2. 28918: I have both the "downloading metadata" and "flushing to disk" bugs. This makes the program almost unusable unfortunately... BTW, Hi guys, I haven't posted here in ages EDIT: I also managed to find a reproducible crash. When you get "flushing to disk", stop the torrent, force re-check, start the torrent, it reliably crashes after a while (I think I have already sent several crash logs).
  3. The "not exactly maximized" problem is likely fixed. Since it was random, I wasn't sure if it's gone or just luck. It hasn't happened since, so I'll assume it's fixed. The problem with the tray icon is still here though... happens only with uT's icon and only appeared recently. I have "minimize at system start", but the window still shows and the tray icon doesn't work properly. Looking into this and GTK66 problem, look for a fix in a few weeks I managed to reproduce the "not exactly maximized" problem reliably. It will happen if I kill uT's process or if I shut down windows while uT is running (I guess windows doesn't wait for uT and kills it).

I have "minimize at system start", but the window still shows and the tray icon doesn't work properly.
  5. I have the following problems with the tray icon [25406]: ==== I have close to tray - on single click on tray... - on always activate when clicked - off ==== When I first start uT, it always show the program window, regardless of how it was when I closed it last time. Then if I close the window (and send it to the tray), clicking on the tray icon doesn't work. The windows doesn't show. I have to use right click > hide/show uT. After I do this once, the tray icon starts working normally. This behaviour has been there for sometime now. Another problem is that sometimes the program window pops up in restored state instead of maximized (I always keep it maximized). It's slightly bigger than maximized when this happens. this has been going on for a few days, but it looks random, so I'm not sure how to reproduce it or even if it happens with the latest build. Here another user is reporting the same problem: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=592204#p592204 Windows 7 x64, SP1
  6. Please do implement the first option. I did some test on my own and I think that 2.2.x was using 128 KB cache lines. It was still reading more than it was uploading, but < 2x, while 3.X is reading at ~100x!
  7. 1. Well, this works as advertised at low speeds, but when the speed increases uT still reads like mad. I just had a single torrent uploading at about 250-300 KB/s and it was reading at 20-30 MB/s. 2. I did not see any difference when playing with this setting (tried 10, 100, 1000). I have no idea what this does, so I don't know what a "sane" value would be; I just tried a bunch at random. To me it seems that uT is reading the entire piece for every block it has to upload and then discards it from the cache.
  8. I have a serious problem with uT's read cache. It seems to be reading a lot more than it actually needs. It just keeps on reading. It must have been going for some time (all 3.X versions I think) but I hadn't noticed until now. Exhibit A: Exhibit B: At this point it was only running for 30 minutes or so and had uploaded < 300MB. The cache setting are all the same as they were on 2.X. I tried different configurations, but nothing seems to make a difference (short of turning the read cache off). build 25277 x86 on Windows 7 x64 SP1 I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, if this make any difference.
  9. I think I fixed it. I didn't have /minimized, but I was shutting down windows while uT is running and minimized to tray, so next time it starts it would start minimized. I tried exiting uT manually (while not minimized to tray) and then shutting down windows and now it seems to start properly every time regardless of how I exited last time. And no, I don't think the problem was with uT not closing properly on shutdown. All other settings were getting stored just fine.
  10. To fix the tray icon' date=' you have to set the Boss Key. Then, activate Boss mode once, and then deactivate Boss mode again. Apparently, after doing that once it should be permanently fixed. Someone suggested this to me, and it has worked for me for the last 3 days (knock on wood).[/quote'] I also have this problem and the boss key fix didn't help unfortunately... Basically, on windows startup there is no icon (uT is set to start on startup). If I disable/enable "always show tray icon" it appears and shows up on subsequent uT restarts, but if I restart windows the icon is gone again. Windows 7x64
  11. I'm also getting something like this. During the recheck, when uT reached a non-existent file that used to be there, it started spouting a repeated error in the logger [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:3888:1044688:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:1048576:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:2097152:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:3145728:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:4194304:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:5242880:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:6291456:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:7340032:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:8388608:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:9437184:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:10485760:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:11534336:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:12582912:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:13631488:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:14680064:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:15728640:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:16777216:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:17825792:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:18874368:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:19922944:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:20971520:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:22020096:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:23068672:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:24117248:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:25165824:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:26214400:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:27262976:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:28311552:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:29360128:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:30408704:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:31457280:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:32505856:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:33554432:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:34603008:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:35651584:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:36700160:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:37748736:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:38797312:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:39845888:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:40894464:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:41943040:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:42991616:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:44040192:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:45088768:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:46137344:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:47185920:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:48234496:1048576:1048576:19 [2010-04-25 00:59:49] ReadFile error: aaf-mb.s08e04.720p.r00:49283072:720816:1048576:19 Then eventually hanged. This is 19225, Windows 7, x64 Files are on a local HDD that works flawlessly. EDIT: so this happens when a partfile is used. If the partfile is deleted or corrupted and I force recheck, uT checks for every piece of every file that was supposed to be downloaded, including every piece of the border files (set to skip, but their border pieces are in the partfile). So if the files are still there, uT just checks them. If they are missing I get the above errors. And if they were border files, after the partfile is gone they are technically missing, and I again get the errors even for pieces that were not supposed to be downloaded. And this happens in 18825 too
  12. "flush files periodically to prevent write cache build-ups" Now at that point uTorrent just hangs. I'll try to upload some dumps later.
  13. The disk overload bug refused to happen to me for some time, but now I got two dumps Hopefully, they are not too late to help. ftp://firon@85.187.183.50:41000/
  14. With 18936 I get disk overload right away. It refuses to write almost anything to the HDD, fills the cache and then slows down to a crawl. Back to 18750, it seems to work just fine. Win 7 64
  15. Sorry about the "dump" in my last post. Here are some real ones: http://alpha-toxic.hit.bg/ut_dump/18803-utorrent.446c.dmp http://alpha-toxic.hit.bg/ut_dump/18803-utorrent.91d8.dmp http://alpha-toxic.hit.bg/ut_dump/18803-utorrent.b471.dmp
