GTK - Thin Client Mode Leaks IP To Trackers

Description

I noticed hits in my firewall detecting a torrent user agent, and I find that Deluge in thin client mode is trying to use the machine controlling the remote seedbox, instead of having the seedbox proxy the tracker icons for the client.

The icons aren't even really necessary if you're trying to see the trackers in use, so I request either an option to disable the use of the icons, or an option to disable fetches for the icons. This is ridiculous and I hope it is an oversight or mistake, and not something that is purposely there to expose users downloading Linux ISOs like myself.

The addictive nature of Slope Game made me unable to take my eyes off the screen.
