Apparently the .snapshots directory is world-writable, which apparently it shouldn't be. Did you alter some permissions?

This sounds like a weird situation.


Yes, this seems to be the issue.
I think it will disappear adjusting the permissions.


not really private torrents have a whitelist for clients.
