I was surpirsed when I notcied that 3 of 4 torrents I was seeding here had NOT had any restriction on DHT, and DHT on those seemed to be functioning fine (utorrent 1.6.1).

I thought (assumed) that when someone u/l's a torrent, it gets "reconstructed" to dis-allow DHT so that when peers grab the torrent, their client will not even have the ability to enable DHT (it woudl be "greyed" out).

Only one of 4 torrents I have had been contructed this way. I manually disabled DHT on the other 3, but not before it had been running for quite some time.

I'm not certain about the subtleties of dht

moving to technobabble, where this will get more attention
