#2140 closed bug (Fixed)

libtorrent 0.16 and torrent moving

Reported by: elek Owned by: andar
Priority: critical Milestone: 1.3.6
Component: Core Version: 1.3.5
Keywords: Cc: a.starr.b@…


Running Deluge as a daemon on headless system with Arch linux. With libtorrent 0.16.3 when I trying to move torrent storage I get this:

[DEBUG   ] 15:45:18 core:390 Moving storage ('0b02adfe498dac0e76ea9068646e5b97fcb6d2dd',) to /media/anime/[UTW] Accel World
[WARNING ] 15:45:18 core:393 Error moving torrent 0b02adfe498dac0e76ea9068646e5b97fcb6d2dd to /media/anime/[UTW] Accel World

Downgrading to libtorrent 0.15.10 fixes the issue.

0.16 is supposed to be backward compatible so this bug should be reported to libtorrent bug tracker.

Actually, I believe the issue is that we're passing Unicode objects to libtorrent when we should be passing UTF8 encoded byte-strings. There was a change made to make the move_storage method use Unicode to resolve an issue on Windows, but I think it's breaking support on Linux with lt 0.16.

We may need to modify the function to behave differently based on the OS.

  • Priority changed from major to critical

Reported on Ubuntu: with suggested workaround.

As a dumb workaround, I had luck with encoding the parameter to UTF-8.

Seems there is still a problem with this. If the dest parameter comes in as an unicode object already it is not encoded to utf-8 before sending to libtorrent. This is compounded by a bug in rencode, which will load strings as unicode objects if they have non-ascii characters, and as byte strings otherwise, no matter whether the string was encoded from a unicode or str object (#2216.)

Ok, think I have a better solution going on in this branch. Still needs some testing on linux where wstrings are not enabled though. It also fixes file renaming with unicode characters and torrent creation with unicode paths.

In createtorrent there is another encode(sys.getfilesystemencoding()) in _on_button_file_clicked which needs removed. These changes should fix #2092
