Is there bittorrent software that runs in a terminal?

I tried btdownloadcurses and while it works fine for most of the torrents, it seems to trip over ones where UDP is employed to track the sources.

The messages I am getting are:

Problem connecting to tracker - ('url error', 'unknown url type', 'udp', 'udp://

So are there any other command line clients with UDP support?
