I'm not a torrent expert, but I thought it did enough checksumming
such that if the packet got mangled, it would get noticd by the
torrent client before it writes the chunks to disk?

We actually run fsx in a number of different configruations as part of
our regression testing before we send Linus a pull request, and
haven't found any issues. So unless it's a hardware problem, it seems
unlikely to me that your running fsx would turn up anything.

Can you send a dumpefs -h of the file system in question, and what
mount options (if any) you are using? Thanks!!

BTW, I'm currently running 3.9-rc2 with some additional fixes from the
ext4 dev branch, and I'm not able to reproduce the problem using
rtorrent on my laptop. How reliably is it reproducing for you? Are
you seeing the problem every time you try this?
