"qbittorrent needs to be restarted"
« on: October 21, 2015, 10:24:37 pm »
I see this once in a while at the lower left corner -- with nothing obviously wrong staring in the face.  :o

 What is the underlying problem that is bringing this thing on?

Is there a hidden something that can just go ahead and do it (restart the program) when needed?

 Is there anything I can do in my settings/ prefs/ (program and/or Mac) to prevent or minimize the problem?

Your external IP has probably changed, and libtorrent needs to restart to connect to peers and trackers.

   By the time I notice the message --- I usually see nothing wrong (as in transfers are cooking). I have a few ways to watch the IP thing (OpenDNS, a torrent called checkMyTorrentIP.png, system prefs, and router). I'll see if I can find or create a logging thing on at least one of them.

IP has not changed for days -- still got one of those restart things.  Any other knowledgable guesses?
