Data destroyed (deleted) when moving! (Reproducible)

Post by Zeroedout »

When moving data from transmissions download folder to a folder that contains a symlink with the name of the data's root folder back to the downloads folder; the data is destroyed!

How to reproduce:

Let's say I have a torrent that has a folder called Fullmetal and data within that folder. It is sitting in /var/lib/transmission-daemon/downloads/
I then create a symlink to it in /home/zeroedout/anime/ so it looks like /home/zeroedout/anime/Fullmetal -----> /var/lib/transmission-daemon/downloads/Fullmetal
When I use the transmission-remote to move the file from downloads to the anime directory, the data dissapears!

There is *nothing* in syslog about moving the data either, only that the data cannot be found.

This is Transmission 2.5 on Debian, x86-64. I've also searched through the system with find. I would expect transmission to fail or to give an error, not delete the data. Should I file a bug report on the tracker or does the forum suffice? (assuming this isn't expected behaviour)
