This is unrelated. The former was an error parseing the torrent file. Your
error is failing to parse the data the tracker sends back. This sometimes
happens when the tracker goes down or is overloaded.
Though you can dump the data received by using the "-t" switch. All
requests are saved to files in the working directory.
