after installing snow leopard transmission has become very to start downloading or to start seeding. when i add a torrent with lots of seeders the torrent does not start downloading imidietly like it should, it takes normaly about 5-10 minuttes or it doesnt start at all.

And in utorrent everythings starts fine and download/upload speeds are good.

these are the things I have checked: *ports are open *no speedlimits are set. *Tried the newst stable version and the beta version

I was wondering if anynone else has the same problem or if anyone has a solution to the problem.

I don't recommend using transmission on Mac yet,it's not that stable to be used in day-to-day operations –  Mahmoud Hossam Sep 11 '09 at 0:13
You need to use the clutch, otherwise you might stall it. –  Breakthrough Sep 11 '09 at 1:37

On the Tranmission bug/changes tracking site I found....

Transmission 1.75 beta 2 (2009/09/08) ¶

All tickets closed by this release All Platforms ¶

* Don't wait so long on unresponsive trackers if there are other trackers to try

Mac ¶

* Fix libcurl build issue that caused tracker connectivity problems on Snow Leopard

Likely that you are seeing the results of a combination of unresponsive trackers and tracker connectivity. Will be fixed in next GA is my guess.
