I was not explicit about it, but FWIW in my case the hang is not due
to drive saturation. The drives were mostly idle (except some stuff
triggered by a buildworld I had going) during the extended period of
ktorrent being unkillable. But again I never had this happen

FWIW I never see any problems at all, even normally, until at least a
couple of megabytes (not megabits) per second of throughput.
