I am not sure it is some tuning problem on the client side. Because
all my other torrents work wonderfully. For example about a month back
I downloaded the Mint iso to try it out, and it finished at my usual
speed of about 500 - 600 Kbps (despite very few seeders). Where as for
the Fedora torrents, it has never been fast, and especially slow
