Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

Do this:
1. Start transmission
2. Download a torrent with an archive in it. (Zip,rar,7zip etc).
3. Choose Open folder on that torrent when its finished
4. Unpack the archive (right click, select Unpack here)
5. Go back to transmission
6. Choose Delete and remove files
7. Where did the files you just unpacked go? OOOPS!

Expected behaviour:
6. Choose Delete and remove files
7. Only the files listed in the torrent is deleted.
8. I can still use the files I unpacked.

Using Transmission 1.33 and the latest Ubuntu Intrepid as of today 2008-09-10 (thats YYYY-MM-DD for you Americans)

If this isn't fixed upstream (they seem to consider it a non-issue) I think Ubuntu should seriosly consider changing official torrent program.

No other program that I use for torrents deletes files other than the ones in the actuall torrent when asked to delete associated data.
