Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System


If on linux, libtorrent and Qt version


What is the problem

I have in options/BitTorrent the value for "maximum active downloads" set to 2. But if i click on a magnet link from the web, and switch back to the qbittirrent program, it starts downloading additional Queued torrents until the magnet link is added to the torrent list. On some low seeded torrent magnet links.. it may take up to 10 seconds to resolve the metadata and add it to to the queued list... during that time... 1 to 2 additional torrents start downloading in my queue order.. regardless that i have maximum active downloads set below.

What is the expected behavior

To observer maximum active downloads under any condition. as is proper... lol

Steps to reproduce

Set maximum active downloads to 1 ... have a queue of more than 4 torrents to download... go to any magnet on a website and lick to have qbittorrent attemp to load and add torrent magnet to the queue.. qbittorrent starts downloading additional torrents while the magnet is parsed and waiting to be added to queue.

Reproducable EVERY time.

Extra info(if any)
