    Angry

    I'm running utorrent 1.7.7 on top of wine. Whenever I try to remove a torrent + data directly from the utorrent gui (not the WebUI), there's about 50% chance that utorrent will crash. Once it does, all hell breaks loose: sometimes data of torrents get screwed, sometimes the .torrent files get deleted from the Application Data directory and sometime other crap happens. A good friend of mine which is a very experienced torrenter was banned from two trackers for HnR after utorrent 1.7.7 decided spontaneously to delete all the data of his torrents, and decided to downgrade to 1.6.1.

    I just spent about an hour manually re-uploading the .torrent files and fixing announce URLs to fix similar problems.
    My conclusion is simple: utorrent 1.7.7 is crap, downgrade to 1.6.1 if you can.

    There, just needed to rant a little. All better now.

    You and your friend must have terrible luck. None of those things have ever happened to me or anyone else I talk to.
    Sig goes here.

    By any chance does either of you run utorrent 1.7.7 on top of wine?
    On Ubuntu 7.0.4? With WebUI?

    Try using it on Windows XP then.
    You don't need to install it, run it on a Virtual Machine...

    I am running it on top of wine, which is a virtual environment simulating windows.

    I don't get the crashing problem with 1.7.7 in wine. Do you have gui.delete_to_trash = false? What version of wine is it? Maybe it's outdated. Only annoying thing is the black background in 1.7 (which isn't a problem with 1.8 beta).

    My Wine version is wine-0.9.33, released on March 16, 2007, which doesn't seem to be too outdated.
    The other option you've mentioned, gui.delete_to_trash, is very interesting actually, since there could be a problem with the way wine emulates (or doesn't emulate) the recycle bin. I'll try this one out. Thanks for the tip!

    That version is quite old actually. I have 0.9.52 currently. IIRC, when I setup a Ubuntu Gutsy server (7.10), it pulled in some wine 0.9.5#. The trash for wine by default is in ~/.local/share/Trash, I'm not sure if it might be different in Ubuntu (most likely not). Check that folder, maybe all your deleted stuff is still in there.
