Okay, it turned out to be an absence of leechers after all.  Here is my post
to the forum below:

Ain't that amazing?  It was actually an absence of leechers!!  I would have
never thought that there could be an absence of leechers for Gutsy this
earyl in its development, but it's true!  When I left the computer yesterday
afternoon at about 5 pm, there simply where no leechers.  At that point, the
amount of uploads equaled 10.3 MB.  When I came back this morning, that
number had increased to 100 MB uploaded!!  So there must have been a lot of
leachers in the European time zone, because they are active when we are
asleep here in San Francisco, California.

So thanks for your answer.  I guess the lesson that we have learned here  is
that the problem is, in fact, the absence of leechers, and not with openSUSE
10.2.  So as long as you check the box to allow seeding after download is
complete, you will continue seeding.  And ain't that a hoot!  I really think
that it is great that I am helping to distribute Free Software, simply by
leaving that box running.  Heh.
