Description

Nightly build Transmission 2.02+ (11026) OS: Linux Debian

when running "transmission-remote -t ID -i" or "transmission-show file.torrent" the reported Total Size is about 5% higher than actual.

It seems to be off by a factor of 1.024*1.024 if that's a clue.

It's using units of kB and MB rather than KiB and MiB...

I agree with gunzip, transmission-remote is a command-line tool, and all other command-tools use KiB/MiB. Also, all the torrent sites list sizes in MiB. The Mac Transmission client is also using KiB/MiB, as well as utorrent and Vuze. I think the switch is going to lead to ongoing confusion.

That's kind of beside the point to this ticket, which is saying that the sizes are incorrect -- not that the units are inconsistent. For the latter, there's already ticket #3045
