Snark reports inflated numbers of peers

I added a torrent to snark, with no peers (according to postman). I use all of the trackers listed here http://forum.i2p/viewtopic.php?t=10001. Snark initially reported 16, then 32, then 48, and now 80 peers for the torrent. The total availability is 0 for this torrent.

Now on 96 peers… Clearly it is going up in 16's

The bug isn't in snark but in one of the trackers you added which is misreporting the peers. If a tracker says "there are _ peers for this torrent" snark will report it.

psi's "experimental tracker" has/had a problem with 16s and you probably either 1) added his tracker or 2) added a tracker using his code.

Closing this ticket because it's not snark's fault if the tracker reports bogus peer info.
