Fully downloaded files show at 0% after upgrading

Hi all,
I'm experiencing a similar problem as described in this topic. But I couldn't get rid of the "No data found" error with the steps listed there.
The problem began when I reinstalled Linux. I reused the old ~/.config/transmission folder to get all settings back, and Transmission did show the magnets. But the directories were changed in my new install, so all of them with the error "No data found".
I then tried the "Set location", with the option "Data is already there". The errors persisted. I then started the torrents, what cleared the error in 2 of them. Other 2 kept showing the error. I tried "Verify local data", and nothing changed.
I decided to remove and re-add the faulty magnets. After adding them again, also with the option "Data is already there", the torrents came without errors. But the downloaded percentage always stayed at 0%. I asked to "Verify local data" - still 0%. I started the torrents, but it didn't help - they started downloading as if I had nothing in my drive.
Could this be a bug or should I be missing something?

Some relevant info:
$ dpkg -l | grep transmission
ii transmission-common 2.84-0.2 all lightweight BitTorrent client (common files)
ii transmission-gtk 2.84-0.2 amd64 lightweight BitTorrent client (GTK+ interface)

I don't know which version of Transmission I was running before.
