I have tested your utorrent server startup script and works perfectly. I have included it in my xfce-installer script. Thanks vorter-5.

/opt/utorrent/log is writable but no utorrent.log inside it.

I reflect correct path in config file : LOGFILE=/opt/utorrent/log/utorrent.log

great script, but there are problems with "restart" function (process restart but script stay fixed at restarting utorrent")
