Bug Description

deluged 1.3.5-1ubuntu1
python-libtorrent 0.16.2-0ubuntu1

The python-libtorrent version appears to be incompatible with this deluged version.

After download, files are never moved to new location, either as programmed to do in settings or in using the Gtk UI to move them.

In core/, method move_storage at line 834, there's a silent eating of an exception at the bottom. It can mask this and cause the function to return False, failure:

    Failed to move 5dc08dc499eba379b4bc8e364c6b9d0ff2c7f794 to /data/%downloaded-unsorted. Python argument types in
        torrent_handle.move_storage(torrent_handle, unicode)
    did not match C++ signature:
        move_storage(libtorrent::torrent_handle {lvalue}, std::string)

It is the unicodeification of the parameter to self.handle.move_storage that makes the parameter not match. The comment at the top of the function is worrysome. Unicode should be used internally, but the function signature for boost signature no longer matches.

As a dumb workaround, I had luck with encoding the parameter to UTF-8.

> self.handle.move_storage(dest_u.encode("utf-8"))

  [Chad Miller]
  * Add patch to fix function parameter on call to libtorrent to move storage.
    It doesn't want Unicode (LP: #1041415).
  * Set minimum version dependency higher to catch new function signature.
  * Fix grammar in control.

@gogo if that is the case then you will need to provide a lot more details on how to reproduce and the error logs.
