Invalid path / file name still crashes client on 14729

Postby kIssGlaY » Sun Apr 03, 2016 5:48 pm

On 14729, still got crash on path/file name with invalid characters, but under slightly different situation as before. This is how I reproduce the crash:
1. Add a torrent with destination folder name including any invalid character and start the torrent. Now the torrent will stop instead of crashing the client after a while.
2. Remove the torrent from list(no matter trash with data or not). Wait for the client to do the next update to the "resume" dir under config dir. This is when the client crash.

According to the log, the client still tries to update the state of the torrent with invalid path name every time it's updating the "resume" dir, even though it stopped with an error. Auto replacing the invalid character, as what the unofficial transmission-qt does, would definitely be a better solution.

BTW, the long path naming issue seems to have been fixed.

I tried on 14736. It seems not crashing if the invalid characters is of the files/paths of the torrent itself, after removing from the list the erroneous torrent, like the ones in http://sonniss.com/GameAudioGDCPart2.torrent.
But it still crashes under the situation stated in the previous post, if you deliberately put some invalid characters in "Destination folder" or in "Save As" field in the dialog box when adding the torrent.

It is not crashing. The long Path issue if exist can be fixed by Long Path Tool

If File Path is too long then I would like to suggest you, try Long Path Tool program to resolve this issue.
