After upgrading uTorrent version from 2.x to 3.x some torrents get the requested address is not valid in its context in tracker statuses. Upload speed on such torrents is very slow or none. Downgrading to uTorrent 2.x fixes the problem. How to get 3.x working?

You probably have set net.outgoing_ip to your internet address (for example, some time earlier for seeding behind a router. This option backfires on new version of uTorrent. To fix the strange behavior of the client you should open preferences->advanced, scroll to net.outgoing_ip option and reset it to blank. Your slow torrents should become alive after uTorrent restart.
