Sorry, something I forgot to mention:

When some pieces are skipped at first, it's not certain whether that
pieces are actually skipped by the peer, or received but thrown away
by rtorrent.

Once the problem begins, it generates huge numbers of skipped holes
every where, immediately transfer list grows loooong, every pieces
flash between queued and not-queued, download tends to jump back and
forth every time, occasionally something comes but doesn't progress. I
can't compare download rate to progressed number in detail.

Although it can happen certainly, slow but problematic peer is something rare...
