Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

When I try opening the following torrent nothing happens. I'm using hardy which is up to date.

http://mrdo.mameworld.info/artwork_20080917.torrent

If there was something wrong about the torrent I was expecting at least some kind of error message, but other people can download the torrent ok.

Confirmed; there's a regression in 1.34 that causes the error dialog to not appear.

This is fixed in svn trunk.
