#5850 new Bug

Open Folder fails when torrent directory name contains ( ) [ ] symbols

Reported by: c765660 Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.82
Severity: Normal Keywords: open folder



OS:Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (amd64/x86_64 architecture)
Transmission: 2.82 (14160)

I've noticed that the "Open Folder" option doesn't always work as expected. When the torrent content is stored in a folder, I expect "Open Folder" to open a file manager inside that directory.

"Open Folder" works in most of the cases, but sometimes it opens the parent folder instead. Only recently I've noticed a pattern for the torrents for which "Open Folder" fails - they all contain some not-common symbols such as [] and () pairs in the name of the directory, which should be opened.

example folder names, which are not opened:

OneTwoThree - Something Else (Hey You There)
[AThingOrTwo] Word More Stuff (2014) GoodBoy 31 February

I suspect a bug with the code parsing the directory name string.

Anonymously Yours,

Thanks for the report. You didn't mention the client you're using, is it Qt or GTK+?
