rtorrent: tracker group list is not a list

It seems like some torrents contain malformed announce-lists making clients which use libtorrent like rtorrent to reject torrent though it is downloadable.

To fix this, either upgrade libtorrent to the latest version or use a hex editor and replace "announce-list" with "xnnounce-list" in the .torrent file.
