Not sure if this is already posted or already reported as a bug because
i honestly don't have time for those things.
I have reproduced this problem a few times but it has some special
requirements. For example i download a torrent from a very fast peer in
the rtorrent client. I have reproduced this with both rTorrent 0.4.5 -
libTorrent 0.8.5 and two earlier versions which i don't remember. My
friend is using the same versions as i am now and reported no problems
in the latest development versions, he only started using them today. I
have a 10/10Mbit connection at home and this happens when rtorrent is
downloading at max speed. It varies somewhere around 7-10Mbit but never
over 10Mbit by much. My friend only has a capacity of 1Mbit but got the
This is why i'm reporting this because if it turns out that this can be
reproduced by sending speciall crafted packets or packets in a special
order then i guess it's pretty serious. I highly doubt this but still, a
user process should not kill the net like rtorrent has done.
Both me and my friend were running FreeBSD 6.0 RELEASE when this happened.
I was not going to report this but a friend just told me he gets the
exact same results on FreeBSD 6.0 so i felt i should tell someone.
