#445 new task

Same files can be "downloaded twice" from the same user

Reported by: dornenreich666@… Owned by: quinox
Priority: major Milestone: Release 1.3.0
Component: nicotine Version: 1.2.12
Keywords: Cc:


When trying to download an entire folder from a user, I of course right-clicked the file, the menu opened, and I clicked on "Download containing folder".

The files didn't appear immediately on the downloads tab, this happens a lot, I do not consider this a bug.

So, I opened the menu and clicked on "Download containing folder" once again, as I usually do when the files don't appear immediately in the downloads tab.

To my (quite big) surprise, the same directory was being placed twice in my downloads tab. This has never happened to me in any previous versions, and seems like it should not happen.

When trying to abort the download, only one of the downloads for the same directory was aborted, and then when trying to "Clear Aborted", it was not cleared from the downloads tab.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Search for something a big general that has a large chance of returning many results.
  2. Try to download an entire folder 2 or more times.

The problem here is that you're impatient - when you "download containing folder", a connections needs to be established to the peer to find out what the contents of the folder is. This can take time, up to two minutes or so. If you then get duplicates in your download list, just clear them.

dornenreich666 is correct. if you choose 'download files' repeatedly in the search list, the same file will be added to your transfers list over and over. the duplicate files cannot be aborted, and deleting one of the duplicate files in the transfers list will also delete the remaining ones.
