That is how he torrent protocol works. You are asking for an ftp style
pull. Torrents are generally pre-allocated on disk which reduces file
fragmentation. One thing I always do is when the gui says 100%, I stop it
from the menu stop, verify that there are no processes left, and restart
it, which causes the engine to recheck the download and fix any errors.

> 2) then, switch to dl'ing 5 torrents simultaneously
That I can't answer. I do know there is some scripting ability, but its
defaults have always Just Worked(TM) for me. Some of its earlier gui's
were a disaster, but the torrent engine worked fine.
