Deleting a downloaded file results in "Malformed message" #405

Closed
opened 4 months ago by y4pLpaUpK7c7 · 2 comments

I was sent a file, and it was downloaded into my downloads directory. Then I deleted the downloaded file and the associated .manifest file from my downloads directory. Now, that message is displayed as "Malformed message" in cwtch.

The "Malformed message" does persist through restarts of cwtch. I haven't tested whether it's replicable with other files.

I would expect to be able to download the file again, or failing that to at least see that it was a file transfer message.

A partial fix for this is in #447 which now checks for the existence of the file and reverts the file downloaded status.

Technically if the file is still on offer it should be downloadable, though we currently don't preserve downloads across sessions (or for more than 30 days) so if either of those conditions has past then the file will remain undownloadable.

This should ship with 1.7.1
