Default rtorrent: Could not lock session directory: "/Torrents/Downloading/rtorrent.session/

when I type
I see this error
rtorrent: Could not lock session directory: "/Torrents/Downloading/rtorrent.session/
this is my rtorrent.rc

# This is an example resource file for rTorrent. Copy to
# ~/.rtorrent.rc and enable/modify the options as needed. Remember to
# uncomment the options you wish to enable.
# Based on original .rtorrent.rc file from http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/
# Modified by Lemonberry for rtGui http://rtgui.googlecode.com/
# This assumes the following directory structure:
# /Torrents/Downloading - temporaray location for torrents while downloading (see "directory")
# /Torrents/Complete - Torrents are moved here when complete (see "on_finished")
# /Torrents/TorrentFiles/Auto - The 'autoload' directory for rtorrent to use.  Place a file 
#           in here, and rtorrent loads it #automatically.  (see "schedule = watch_directory")
# /Torrents/Downloading/rtorrent.session - for storing rtorrent session information

# Maximum and minimum number of peers to connect to per torrent.
#min_peers = 40
#max_peers = 100

Does /Torrents/Downloading/rtorrent.session actually exist, is it actually a directory, and is it owned and writable by the rtorrent user? If yes/yes/yes, is rtorrent already running (in other words, is there a lockfile [rtorrent.lock] in the session directory? Is this lockfile (or any other file in the session directory) owned and wirtable by the rtorrent user?

Tip: if you haven't already done so, create a separate user for rtorrent, and run rtorrent as that user -- certainly not as root! Use screen to run it in the background at all times.
