4 people shared the file at this moment, what should be enough.
ctorrent hasn't a "leach" mode (i think you mean leech mode). 
When you are downloading from a peer, you are also uploading
(sharing) the file and you become another peer.

If some clients are only downloading (not wasting any uploading bandwith) you
are doing it with "maximum speed" -> which means "leech mode".

But that's not the way bit torrent was intended for. 
("Give and ye shall receive!")

I just seems that you have a bad connection at the moment.

Your torrent file is not corrupted.

the MD5 of mine is the same:
MD5 (techtv-freebsd_clusters.avi.torrent) = a1a4e1ba9e18e527555adad8b198c498

I am the only one, who seeds the file at the moment.
I also copied the torrent and the final .avi file to my webserver.

You can get all from here:
