magnet links stalled until qbit restart #10632
Please provide the following information
qBittorrent version and Operating System
qbit torrent 4.1.6, windows 10 pro
What is the problem
Any torrent opened via magnet link consistently has status: stalled. When I restart qbit torrent after adding a magnet link, it works near instantly
What is the expected behavior
Torrent being downloaded
Steps to reproduce
Start any magnet link, nothing happens
Extra info(if any)
Torrent files aren't impacted.
For me Magnet links do not work at all, I have to "copy link location", then go to qbittorrent, press add torrent from link, see that the link is filled out, and press OK
After OK, the download starts, it does not stall.
I have QBittorrent 4.1.6 x64 on Windows 10 (1809)
I have the same issue with magnet links but not everytime. Stay stalled… in the peer list there are many 0.0% peers and "I" flags, no "D" or "d" flags. They want to download from me?

Does Sledge's v4 build resolve this at all as well?https://builds.shiki.hu/temp/qbittorrent_4.1.6_x64_for_issue_10581_v4.7z
Unfortunately, this build only fixes 10581 and has no effect on the issue here.
I'm having the same issue (Windows 10 1803 with the latest patch) and even restarting or reverting back to v 4.1.5 won't help. The torrent shows in the list as "downloading" but never moves beyond 0%. Qbittorrent windows firewall exception is on, connection settings for QB shows use qbittorrent for magnet links is ticked under the File Association tab. It briefly worked two days ago when the torrents took several minutes to start but now it's permanently stalled. What I don't understand that even with v 4.1.5 it's no longer working. (latest v4 build of 4.1.6 does nothing for me, unfortunately)
