All the need parts are working.
webui works just find "c:/WINDOWS/profiles/ 'user' /Application Data/uTorrent" and find settings.dat the the readme tells you to look for so you can put webui.zip there.
What does not
Most likely what I haven't tested :P
What was not tested

Works well and does whats needed

If/When you get this error:
It seems like uTorrent is already running, but not responding. Please close all uTorrent processes and try again.
you could simply kill all the utorrent processes with:
killall -9 uTorrent.exe
Then just open utorrent, not the installer.
You can also open Âµtorrent with '/NOINSTALL' parameter but then you can't change any settings (if I understood right). E.g.:
C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" /NOINSTALL
It seems that with the new version of Wine Web UI is supported and the RSS features where tested. This is great news as that elevates utorrent to Platinum status on AppDB. Of course more test results are always welcome as it got platinum on 64 bit ubuntu only so far. See Aaron Poley's 64bit 7.10 submission at:

Haven't found a workaround for it yet.

Start the executable using the /NOINSTALL option. Example:
wine "C:\\Program Files\\uTorrent\\uTorrent.exe" /NOINSTALL &
After that, it should start as normal without using any options.

using www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/ i compiled following script:
; Run uTorrent.exe from parameter passed to this script
; Wait for the ÂµTorrent become active with nag screen about freeness
; Now that the ÂµTorrent window is active press enter, to dismiss it
Sleep(1000); Wait 1 sec
; Wait for the main app win(usually titled ÂµTorrent 1.8.5) activate
; Now we can maximise it
WinSetState("ÂµTorrent", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
now wine /home/pub/fxp/.wine/drive_c/uTorrent/utorrent-skipnag.exe \
"C:\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" lets me start utorrent normally from initscript (and also maximises it's window)

Options..Preferences -> Other
Check "Automatically load .torrents in directory"
mine is set to H:\Download\torrent_in (~/Download/torrent_in)
This can be set outside for ftp drops as well. For some reason about 1 in 10 or so times it seems a .torrent file doesn't register in bittorrent. It may be the timing of bittorrent vs. wine getting notified from the filesystem.

nohup wine ~/utorrent.exe "`winepath -w "$@"`" 2>/dev/null >/dev/null &
Save this as utorrent.sh, make it executable, and associate it to torrent files for firefox and your desktop environment. It's only fault I know about is that if I start it without parameters, then uTorrent complains about "Can't open ""!" or something.

Yet I also noticed a minor difference when running uTorrent in wine and windows: the torrents list seems to alternate between a gray and a white background on each row. I think this is actually cool and I like it better this way, it's just that when on Windows, the list background is plain white.
there are other differences regarding file listing such as an arrow next to the ordering column title and the background of the ordering column set to gray when you click on the title. My guss is that all this differences are related to some "listing component" reimplemented on wine or something similar.
Another old bug I haven't seen mentioned anywhere is the "close to tray" feature not working properly on versions prior to 1.0-rc1. I'm not sure this has been fixed at all since I haven't tried myself

Also, close to tray has worked flawlessly with Ubuntu 7.10 and I am not sure if even 7.04 was ok. Other distros do show up in tests as having problems. I have been using uTorrent on Ubuntu since last August and I don't recall having any problems with the tray.
Also stability is excellent. There was a time when there were over 140 torrents stored and 2-5 running. And the resource load was with Wine only a fraction from the consumption of the competition. Exceptional app!

"I'm entering this type of string:
the same string works well on my windows system but on my seedbox, i can get the rss content, but when i click on the torrent to add from it, i always get invalid torrent file error.
There was disscusion about that in the bitmetv forums. Just search for "rss feed" in the search tab. tread name is "BitMeTV RSS Feed with utorrent" and read last pages.
It seems that there is an RSS issue while running utorrent under wine."
