All-

As far as I can tell, the autoposter is creating torrents that go over
the 4gb size limit that the generator and torrent system has. So, the
torrent files are broken when you try to load them into a client.

Whomever is working on the autoposter has to make sure that the total
torrent size doesn't go over 4gb or problems like this will occur. I
thought Nutter had error-checking code in there already, but it looks
like that is not the case.
