Are you having this problem with torrent that includes a 'webseed'?  If so, this is a known issue in Transmission.

See: https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1079

Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2012-06-19 16:22:10 UTC
I can confirm I only have this problem with some torrents, but how do I know if it includes a webseed? AFAIR it was one of the F17 ISOs.

Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2013-01-20 02:33:50 UTC
Closing this since upstream is already tracking this issue and there is no fix available yet.
