Package: ktorrent
Version: 4.0.5-3
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Recently my KTorrent started to behave abnormally. After a couple of minutes of
downloading the processes suddenly stop and after that the whole network
connection is broken. Then I have to renew the connection (I'm using the
Network-Manager applet under Gnome). Sometimes this is possible, and sometimes
I have to restart the whole NM applet to regain connection. After I succeed at
this, KTorrent continues to download, but only for another couple of minutes
just to brake the connection again afterwards. I'm certain that it's KTorrent
fault because when I turn it off, everything's fine.

I tried running it from the console, to check the output after such a crash. I
found a handful of the following messages: "Application asked to unregister
timer 0x2000001 which is not registered in this thread. Fix application." Of
course the hex numbers in the middle change. A little query with Google led me
to believe, that this is in fact a Qt problem. The following page has more info
and a presumable patch:

I've also noticed that there was a similar bug report concerning the Kcalc
package: Bug#620972.
