#2820 new bug

Zero-size files in torrents incorrectly handled during rechecks

Reported by: dpedu Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: not applicable
Component: libtorrent Version: 1.3.12
Keywords: Cc:


If a torrent contains a zero-length file and the torrent is "Rechecked", the file is incorrectly marked as 0.00% complete.

If the torrent is stored on a read-only filesystem the torrent will be put into the Error state and will not seed.

Interestingly enough, it seems this causes other files in the torrent to be re-checked as having less than 100% done when they are in fact fully downloaded.

Marking the 0-length files as "Do Not Download" and re-checking again is a workaround - the torrent will re-check as 100%.
