Thats strange. I wonder why no one has ever wrote a plugin to save and load settings on startup.
I think this is my main issue now with QB (not that any of these things are your guys responsibility). The standard deluge settings are not quite right, in that they start downloading , work up to full speed, then get slower and slower and slower. As if its not handling the cache correctly or the disk cant keep up. This is with torrents with lots of high speed seeders.
If I switch to rutorrent it works up to full speed and stays there (ruling out a hardware issue) But it has annoying "features" like losing its settings and the total seed time. Also a force recheck takes forever.
In retrospect, I wish I had saved the config settings from Seedhost, Seedboxes, Feral etc etc to compare. I wonder if we could talk someone who still has a live box to share their settings
