Description Kolan Sh. 2012-01-31 19:18:26 UTC
rtorrent-0.8.9(and 0.8.7-r4) with curl-7.24.0 leads to 100% cpu usage.
With previous stable curl-7.21.4 this behaviour not observed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -avq1 =net-misc/curl-7.24.0 rtorrent
2. run rtorrent $list_of_more_than_500_torrent_files
Actual Results:  
100% of cpu load an average of.

Expected Results:  
About 1-5% of cpu load an average of.

Tested on Hardened Gentoo. On Common Gentoo system with list of 1 torrent file this behaviour not observed.
Comment 1 2012-02-10 07:31:59 UTC
I confirm that. Using ~amd64.
Downgraded to curl-7.21.4.
Comment 2 Amir Aupov 2012-02-28 20:32:58 UTC
The same for me. (~amd64)
works fine with net-misc/curl-7.23.1

Works on my amd64 (stable) server. What are your versions and USE-flags?

Comment 4 Tommy Pettersson 2012-04-14 16:35:32 UTC
I tried with the above listed USE flags and versions, and I still suffer from the 100% CPU problem.

Machine is an AMD64 SMP.

Downgrading to curl-7.21.4 makes the problem go away.
Comment 5 Kolan Sh. 2012-04-23 10:14:14 UTC
With the release of curl-7.25.0-r1 situation has not changed, rtorrent also loads cpu at 100%.
Comment 6 BBrain 2012-04-27 09:07:46 UTC
I confirm - the problem is exists. 
Downgrade curl from 7.24.0 to 7.21.4 solves the issue.

Valgrind curl-7.24.0
Comment 10 Kolan Sh. 2013-01-01 14:36:36 UTC
I don't observe this problem for several months. There are suspicions that the problem was neither in rtorrent, nor in curl, but somewhere at lower level.

If no one else is watching this bug, perhaps it should be marked as "RESOLVED-> FIXED".
