No Error Message When Download Directory Lacks Write Permissoin

First, thanks for the great program.

If the "download to" directory is set to a directory that exists but has no write permission by the running user, there is no obvious error of the problem. The symptom is that deluge will show it is downloading the file with lots of seeders and peers, but the download rate, seeders, and peers will all drop to zero in about a minute. The status goes to "Error:" with no other information.

Expected behavior on failure to open a file or write to a file (e.g. disk full) should be a more informative error message and/or error dialog.

Thanks again.
