Unexpected behavior on completed torrents and file deletion

After completing a torrent last night, I closed µTorrent and browsed to the download directory. There was a thumbs.db file there, and, forgetting I still needed to seed, I deleted it. Later, I opened µTorrent again, and the torrent would not seed, complaining of corrupt or missing files. As a workaround I remove the torrent and readded it, but µTorrent should have decided that the active torrent was incomplete and begun leeching again, instead of deciding that the torrent was unfixable.

Also, why does µTorrent internally flag that a torrent is in seed mode and retain that state after the client has closed and been reopened?
