For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.3+dfsg1-2etch1. For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version 2.2.1.dfsg.1-1. We recommend that you upgrade your ktorrent package.
