I can also confirm the problem described by afunix and Siegfried.

@R33D...: Changing to another client may well be a solution for you, but
not for ktorrent. Neither is leeching to an unencrypted partition, so my
speaking about SOLVED above was clearly a mistake. It's not a fix, it's
a workaround. If not just qBittorrent but also other clients other than
ktorrent work correctly with encrypted working directories, our
suspicions against ktorrent itself will of course strenthen further (and
exclude those against ecryptfs and so on).

The question is whether the developers of ktorrent are at all
considering this issue, or if they're merely focusing at the moment on
feature extensions in the 4.0-branch. qBittorrent explicity rips parts
of ktorrent code into its implementation (e.g. ETA estimation), which is
of course perfectly ok. Perhaps it's "payback time", at least
inspirationally. The two programs are after all somewhat related (C++,
Qt, GPL, ok that might be it; I think it is, really).
