I thought this would be a better place for this discussion than the
ticket.  Here's the ticket so far.  I still think being able to rehash
a particular file would be really handy, but some more input would be

It'd be great if I could select a file in the file list and hit ^R to
just rehash that file. It's a huge pain to rehash 40 gig worth of data
when I just had one file out of place.

I don't see the point of this feature that an close/open won't do.

When you say close/open do you mean ^k/^s? I tried that and it doesn't
seem to work. The files that I moved into place don't show up as
complete in the file list. Also, my previous case was a little
simplistic. What if I have a 40 gig torrent, of which I've downloaded
20 gig of, and I don't want to download any more, but I had a file out
of place? Then if it has to rehash everything that wasn't complete it
still has to hash 20 gig worth of stuff which is still a bunch.

Forcing you to check the hash is a future, not a bug. If you are the
initial seeder then there's an external script for this.
