Why is transmission daemon using over 100% cpu?

I've recently installed the transmission-daemon package but I'm encountering some issues. Firstly when adding a torrent, transmission starts using more than 100% cpu (according to top/cockpit). Secondly it reports that it's unable to save a resume file due to there being "too many open files".

I've tried killing and starting the service and also wiping the configuration and reinstalling, no dice. To be honest I have no idea where to begin debugging this one.

I don't believe it's a resource issue as my system is running a fairly recent quad core cpu and has 32gb of ram; under normal load cpu usage is around 20% and memory usage around 4gb.

I've searched the web for the "too many open files" error, but there seems to be no recent reports of this error.

Can anyone help and/or let me know where I can file a bug report?
