Folks told me how.

The bittorrent version from rpmforge will not do the tracked CentOS
torrent if a tracker is not available. See my reply to

Re: [CentOS] Trackerless torrents (was: Can't connect to torrent
tracker)

The tests outlined in the activity log attached there could be emulated
with other clients to see what they do, if one is interested.

FWIW, the tracker is offline again tonight.

I'm seeing a few 100 DHT peers for each
CentOS-5.1-{i386|x86_64}-bin-DVD so the torrent is freely running, but
the tracker has been AWOL for hours now ('offline - timed out').
