Bug #2437: rtorrent crashes with large number of connections

Author: Tim Darby
Status: Feedback
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

When I build libtorrent from pkgsrc with kqueue support, it crashes quickly if there are a large number of connections (doesn't happen with select polling). The error message is "PollKQueue::modify() error: Bad file descriptor".  After some Googling, I found this FreeBSD patch which fixes the problem in my limited testing so far:


Can someone get this into pkgsrc for DF?
