Thanks Jimmy,

I actually tried a torrent that wasn't using the same tracker as the
ones that weren't working in any client, and that one downloaded fine.
 It seems that the tracker I was using yesterday was malfunctioning -
I tested the same torrent in a different OS with the same failed
results.  So, my apologies.  :)  Thanks for getting back to me.
