#3116 new bug

Adding parentheses to root folder name doesn't update title

Reported by: Hayden Schiff Owned by:
Priority: critical Milestone: needs verified
Component: Unknown Version: 1.3.13
Keywords: Cc:


Suppose you have a torrent whose label and root folder are named "Foo Bar". Normally, in the GTK client, if you double-click on the root folder (in the Files tab) and rename it to something else, the title is also updated to the same value. However, if you rename the folder from "Foo Bar" to "Foo Bar (2017)" -- adding just that bit in parentheses and not changing any other part of the name -- the title will not be updated, and will remain "Foo Bar".

Furthermore, any attempts to rename the "Foo Bar (2017)" to anything else will fail -- the updates will simply not persist. The torrent is in some weird buggy state now, and the only way to fix it is to entirely remove the torrent from Deluge.

Because it's such a pain to revert, I haven't fully tested to figure out the exact range of inputs that cause this bug. I can only confirm that this happens when the original title consists of alphanumeric characters and spaces, and you add a space followed by a number in parentheses to the end of the name.

Client: Deluge 1.3.15 on Mac OS X 10.10.5
Server: Deluge 1.3.13 on Debian 9

Actually, I should clarify -- even removing and readding the torrent doesn't seem to fix the bug. Whatever's causing the torrent to be bugged out will reappear when the torrent is readded. There are now just some torrents that are forever glitched on my server.

This is also occurring for me under Debian 9 with the same versions of libtorrent and deluge-gtk running in Classic Mode. The only additional thing I'm seeing is that if you rename the folder from "Foo Bar" to "Foo Bar (2017)" when you are adding a torrent, it gets added to Deluge with this folder structure instead:

└─ Foo Bar
   └─ (2017)

Then Deluge places the files that you expected to be in a top level "Foo Bar (2017)" folder inside the "(2017)" subfolder.

There are major issues with lt 1.1.1 and deluge please upgrade to latest libtorrent 1.1 and retest

Replying to Cas:

How exactly does one do that on Debian 9? Even this method fails because libboost-system1.58.0 isn't available:
