Downloading more than it should?

Post by h8uthemost » Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:08 pm

Hey guys,

I'm using Transmission 1.92 in Ubuntu. And I noticed under the Information tab, it looks like Transmission is downloading more than it should on quite a few torrents. The extra amount is only by a 1mb or two, but that amount would add up.

This is what I'm talking about:

The amounts under Torrent Size and Downloaded are different by 1MB. And it's like this on a lot of my torrents. I know there's been a lot of grumblings from trackers in the past about Transmission downloading more than it should, but I thought this error was fixed in 1.92.

So can anyone explain to me why these two numbers off? Thanks for any help.

The overdownloading issue is covered in http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/2993

But, honestly, 224.5 MB out of 223.5 MB is only 0.004 percent over... I don't see this as a problem.

Well, there was one torrent that showed almost 200MB downloaded than it should have. But that was the only that was over a 1MB downloaded.

Thanks.
