Tracker returns announce interval and rtorrent honours it as far as I
understand things.  I also see this from time to time with this scenario:

   1. rtorrent connects to tracker to start downloading
   2. connect succeeds and anounce interval is sent back, say 1800s
   3. download continues and finishes in say 10 minutes
   4. rtorrent starts hash check, finishes it and reconnects at which point
      tracker wll return similar error as you have mentioned
   5. after that rtorrent will continue reconnecting only every 1800s so no
      more errors are returned by tracker (if you continue seeding it that

Is it the same for you?
