No thats fine. I confirmed that with ktorrent, beagle with continuously index 
data, even those which are already downloaded. Its the same case with azereus 
and maybe other torrent clients

Yes it could be fixed if ktorrent (and other apps) did not needlessly open 
files RW but open them in read-only mode if only reading is needed. This 
requires some effort in these torrent apps, thus I doubt if they will fix it. 
Still... its worth a try.
