I tried the tracker from the kernel.org site just minutes ago using the 
Ktorrent client.
After a couple minutes, my stats looked like:

    Leechers: 10 (125) Average Up Speed:     2.1 KB/s
    Seeders:  40 (900) Average Down Speed: 560.7 KB/s

I blew off the d/l 'cause I already have a DVD but that would work out
to a bit less that 2 hours for  the DVD image. That's pretty much wide
open for my DSL connection.

Have you tried any of the speed tests available? That should eliminate 
your torrent client as a suspect.  Here are two 2 test sites. The first 
requires flash; the second uses java, often has requests in queue but 
gives a lot of network information.   I have both bookmarked.

Good luck!
