thank you!

after some searching and trying i found "qbittorrent-nox" useful

* created a own user for it in the group "nobody"
* userhome points in the data directory where all files are saved later
* provides a nice webinterface
* after the next start it resumes whatever happened
* negative: you can limit upload but if you do so only to 50 KB/s, i had 250 KB/s in mind

well, and that way it works as systemd-unit, not trie dhow it continues to seed
after restart because i need to re-download by find no way to recognize the
existing one
