    Upgraded to the latest rtorrent / libtorrent today:

    Code:
    libtorrent-0.12.4   BitTorrent Library written in C++
    rtorrent-0.8.4      BitTorrent Client written in C++
    rtorrent came with a revised rtorrent.rc, but unfortunately the syntax for sending data to rtgui bombs rtorrent:

    .rtorrent.rc:
    Code:
    scgi_port = localhost:5000
    result:
    Code:
    rtorrent: std::bad_alloc
    rtorrent was rebuilt from scratch with xmlrpc support enabled.

    Another problem appears to be 'stop_on_ratio'. The syntax has changed slightly (some double quotes were added to the syntax), but the error persists.

    .rtorrent.rc
    Code:
    schedule = ratio,60,60,"stop_on_ratio=110"
    
    (variants without double quotes, or using the default three values, no difference)
    result:
    Code:
    Scheduled command failed: ratio: Command "stop_on_ratio" does not exist.
    Just checking to see if other people have this problem before making a PR.

    I'll try updating, I seem to have had some ``unexpected good results'' with rtorrent&rtgui before ;)

    Will keep you posted.

    As far as the ratio error goes:
    http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/wiki/RTorrentRatioHandling
    ("The ratio handling has been updated in rtorrent 0.8.4.")

    Quite annoying that the rtorrent.rc installed with the port has obsoleted options! I should say: the invalid rtorrent.rc is distributed with the official tarball from rikshasa.no. That's pretty lame.
