I've been using rtorrent for some time and just started getting a
strange error.  First some background.

I'm running OpenSuSE 10.0, kept up to date with smart
I built libtorrent and rtorrent from source, versions:
    * libtorrent-0.9.3.tar.gz
    * rtorrent-0.5.3.tar.gz

I recently got a new drive, 300GB that is formatted as ext3 in one
partition, this is where I download torrents to.

Here's the error I get, it's happens when I download a new torrent (as
opposed to continuing a torrent that I had before I switched drives
via the .rtorrent_session directory stuff).

Caught Segmentation fault, dumping stack:B] [Port: 6910]

Any ideas what could be causing this?  I've since rebuilt from source
and I still get it.
