Sorry, this is not a deluge bug.
It's a problem of that torrent.

Replying to simonbcn:

What kind of an answer is that?

I have noticed that after standby all my torrents (100+ from 3+ different trackers) have this status and Pause/Resume/Update tracker/Force re-check does nothing, the only way I can fix this is by manually restarting the deluge daemon.

What sort of debug information could I provide to help you with this?

This is not a Deluge bug, it's networking issue, either DNS or winsock related.

But how can this be a DNS/winsock issue if:

  • everything else network related is functioning fine
  • I am using Linux
  • manual restart fixes it

?

'Host not found' is a networking error when looking up the tracker host name. The message is probably emitted from boost lib which is used by libtorrent so make sure you have the latest version of libtorrent and if possible boost.

If you wish to discuss it further please create a topic in the forum.
