with "libtorrent-rasterbar 1:1.0.7-3" torrent stay always in pause. torrents works if resumed, but on ui the state stays in paused, with no infos about completed, downloading or % complete

Package version(s):
deluge 1.3.12-1
libtorrent-rasterbar 1:1.0.7-3
boost-libs 1.60.0-1

Output starting deluge:

Same bug on my system with exactly the same Traceback.
Comment by Jacob S (Gourdcaptain) - Saturday, 26 December 2015, 05:27 GMT
I am also experiencing the same symptoms.

It should be noted that downgrading to the following reverses the problem[1]:
libtorrent-rasterbar 1:1.0.7-3 --> libtorrent-rasterbar-1:1.0.7-2
boost-libs 1.60.0-1 --> boost-libs-1.59.0-5

Same thing here.
edit: confirmed that downgrading fixes the issue.

The fix for libtorrent is here:

Maybe we could get this patched in?
Comment by John (graysky) - Sunday, 03 January 2016, 18:54 GMT
@andrew - Did you apply the patch and verify functionality?
Comment by Andrew Resch (timegas) - Sunday, 03 January 2016, 18:58 GMT
I wrote the patch.

I applied patch and rebuilt libtorrent-rasterbar with boost 1.60. With it deluge now works correctly for me, can pause and resume torrents without problems.
Comment by John (graysky) - Sunday, 03 January 2016, 19:14 GMT
@andrew - Didn't know that. I see upstream merged it as well.
Comment by John (graysky) - Sunday, 03 January 2016, 19:30 GMT
I applied your patch and rebult libtorrent-rasterbar. As expected, it works correctly for me as well with boost 1.60. Good job.

Quick fix for the PKGBUILD:
sed -i 's/register_ptr_to_python<std::auto_ptr<alert> >/register_ptr_to_python<boost::shared_ptr<alert> >/' bindings/python/src/session.cpp

The patch seems to work for me.

I've posted a report to libtorrent-rasterbar ( FS#47651 ), as it's the actual source of the bug. Hopefully the issue will be fixed soon.

I'm adding fyan to this bug report, as fix seems to be in of libtorrent-rasterbar.
Comment by Sébastien Luttringer (seblu) - Monday, 11 January 2016, 20:18 GMT
I tested too with a patched version of libtorrent-rasterbar and issue seems to be gone. Felix, would you mind if I push a patched version of this package?
Comment by Doug Newgard (Scimmia) - Monday, 11 January 2016, 20:21 GMT
libtorrent-rasterbar has a maintainer now! Thanks Felix!
Comment by Felix Yan (felixonmars) - Tuesday, 12 January 2016, 03:15 GMT
Sorry for the late response - it was midnight here.

Thanks seblu, I just went ahead and rebuild the package with the patch.
