#5757 closed Bug (fixed)

zero-length path field is "invalid data"

Reported by: Whosawhatsis Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.90
Component: libtransmission Version: 2.84
Severity: Normal Keywords: backport-candidate-2.8x


Some torrent file creator(s) are including a zero-length field at the beginning of the path for each torrent file (looks like "...4:pathl0:12:filename.txtee..."). Removing the "0:" part allows the file to be loaded correctly into Transmission, but makes it unrecognized by the tracker.

The files I found this on are all from a private tracker, or I would attach one.
