Package: libtorrent9
Version: 0.10.4-1
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Few days ago I've installed linux-image-2.6.18-3-686. Since then
rtorrent/libtorrent started to behave strange. After downloading the
files, when hash check was performed, rtorrent began to display
following errors:
bad CRC check consider using 'safe_sync'
Turning on safe sync didn't help.

I believe that these errors are caused by the following changes in the
kernel package:
   * Fix msync() for LSB 3.1 compliance, backport fedora patches from
    - mm: tracking shared dirty pages
    - mm: balance dirty pages
    - mm: optimize the new mprotect() code a bit
    - mm: small cleanup of install_page()
    - mm: fixup do_wp_page()
    - mm: msync() cleanup (closes: #394392)

With linux-image-2.6.18-2 the problem does not occur.
