Bug Description

Has been working fine, but update to 0.3.4 stalled the program after clicking 'download all'.

Running from console gave this output:

Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 532, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/rapid/", line 2887, in run
    fileDownloaded = downloadFile(mediaFile, sequence_to_use)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/rapid/", line 2339, in downloadFile, self.stripCharacters, mediaFile.downloadSubfolder):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/rapid/", line 1247, in generateNameSequencePossibilities
    stripInitialPeriodFromExtension, sequence)
TypeError: _generateName() takes exactly 8 arguments (7 given)

Having scanned the surrounding functions in that module, adding 'None' as an additional final parameter to generateName() in the offending line solved the problem, but as a novice I don't know if that's an appropriate fix.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 if that's relevant.

Yes, that's a bug. Thanks for reporting it. I'm actually working on a heavily revised version of Rapid Photo Downloader. So I need to think about whether to release a new version with this bug fix, or persevere with developing 0.4.0.
