The bittorrent (and bittorrent-gui) package has been downgraded in the

doing development on wxPython 2.6, there is little prospect of a fix for
this before FC7 release, so the package has been downgraded to the last
version that had a working (pygtk2-based) GUI.

Why don't you add a compat-wxPython 2.6 if it works with that?

The wxPython maintainer didn't think that a compat-wxPython26 package was a particularly good idea, and would prefer to try to get the wxPython 2.8 issues resolved instead:
