#3004 closed Bug (fixed)

Transmission doesn't report to the user errors when saving settings files

Reported by: Longinus00 Owned by: Longinus00
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.00
Component: libtransmission Version: 1.91
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc:

Description

Unless a user looks through the logs manually, there is no indication that saving files with tr_bencToFile failed since the return value is never checked. If the user has permission problems this can cause a loss of all progress or even torrents.

Reported by Balrog in IRC.

Someone needs to walk me through a reasonable scenario where this is going to happen.

Saving setting and stats files can also fail "silently" but I'm not sure if that's a problem.
