Default torrent clients are driving me nuts

I give up using rtorrent any more, untill they fix bug, that couses FreeBSD (and as i found in this forum, OpenBSD as well) to lag.
It pisses me off

So I went searching for new clients.

Here's what i have tried:
rtorrent - well, just to point out. It's good but has serious lags.
ctorrent - I like it, i think i might write script that starts it automatically, and it could be usable (i would prefer single process, but i can live with it)
transmittion_gtk - it looks good, it has good features, BUT it's downloading speed is low. it's being outrun by r/ctorrent
transmittion_cli - i absolutely didn't like it
btpd - i could start daemon, but didn't manage to connect to it with dtcli.

I didn't try
* deluge, because i'm minimalist, and i don't like mixing python with apps.
* any java torrect client. And i doubt you can talk me in to try one.
* any torrents for kde, to many dependencies
* qtorrent, because i remember how disappointed i was 2 years ago when i tried it
* unworkable, because of how it sounds
* others

can anyone suggest anything good.
i prefer console based clients like rtorrent
