Automatically loading torrents fails if torrents moved via FTP

It seems that automatically loading torrents from a specified directory fails if the torrent files are moved into that directory via FTP. However, any subsequent change in that directory, e.g. changing a file name or copying another file into the directory, will alert µTorrent that there are files to be downloaded.

Is this a bug?

nepenthe: That's because FTP doesn't send the file in one piece so that when µTorrent finds the file and loads it, it will be incomplete. µTorrent could use a delay before autoloading torrents I guess.

The same goes for renaming. When autoloading torrents, they are copied to the store-folder (at least I think so) and if a .torrent-file with a new name is found in the autoload folder, µTorrent will load that one as well.

Moving the files with Windows Explorer should work though. I can't see the difference between moving and copying except that the original files are removed when moving. Has it happened many times slayers?

I don't know that I buy that. Even if you were right about the file being incomplete when µTorrent looked for the first time, surely it would be complete the second time, now wouldn't it?

Funny thing is: As soon as I upload a second file via FTP, both downloads start immediately.
