transmission-gtk 2.22 fails to open/add new torrents properly

Reported by: moted Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.22
Severity: Normal Keywords:



Using transmission-gtk and transmission-cli on both 2.22-1 and 2.22-3 I receive a "Transmission is already running" error when trying to add a new torrent when the client is already running. The default GNOME application is set to use transmission-gtk and it happens with every new torrent that I add from either nautilus or when opening from any browser or cli. Reverting back to 2.21-3 resolves this issue and new torrents open properly. I also noticed that if one tries to launch another session or clicks on a transmission icon to bring the application into focus it thinks that a new session is trying to be created and fails with a "Transmission is already running" error. Please note that adding a torrent with the "open" button on the client successfully adds the torrent.
