Since 2.62 magnet links sometimes severely crash Win 8.1 64-bit

I've been using Tixati for years and I am not a noob. Something about magnet links changed in 2.62 and all version up to 2.66 sometimes cause a crash.

Even the changelog in 2.62 mentions "magnet" multiple times.

Every time a new Tixati version comes out, I try it, but revert to 2.61-1 when a new version still crashes.

2.61-1 does not have the problem.

Here's what happens:
Maybe 1-10% of the time when I click on a magnet link (using Google Chrome), a Windows crash screen pops up for like 1 second and says "Windows needs to restart" or something like that. Often my PC will make a weird crashing sound and then immediately reboot. It's bad because the reboot can't be stopped and it happens fast, so you lose all open work/windows.

I've seen the problem trigger from 2 different sites:

sites removed by Mod and sent to Devs.

My PC is rock solid and pretty much never crashes except for this.

Just trying to help. I want to use new versions of Tixati but I have to keep going back to 2.61-1 until this stops happening. Thanks

Is this still happening in v2.71 ? Please confirm, thanks.

do you have the problem too or are you a dev? i haven't tried 2.71 because i didn't see anything about magnet links mentioned in the changelog. but if you're a dev and you may have fixed it, i can download 2.71 and try it.

have you tried 1.71?

if you click a magnet link (for a second time) that has made you crash, will you crash again?

if you have any magnet links that always crash post them.

if you click the same magnet links in a different browser do they crash?

ok I'll try 2.71 and experiment if I get another crash.
