Chokes on torrent with long file paths

A sufficiently long file path for a file in the torrent will result in a bad file descriptor error; this happens well before the system limit for file paths.

  • Component changed from Mac Client to Transmission

How long a file path? Can you post the error message?

Clearing the torrent and starting it in shorter path worked.

dak180: I find that " New" suspicious. Why does the folder begin with a space?

Also, could you turn on Debug log messages, rerun the test, and mail me the 100 or so lines leading up to that error message to charles

Lastly, I find that torrent's contents to be suspicious. Please don't use Transmission for unlicensed content.

In PM, dak180 says that this error is not repeatable.

Unless more information becomes available, there's not much that can be done with this ticket, so I'm closing it for now. Please feel free to reopen if the problem reappears.
