Azureus retarded in unfathomable way


I upgraded azureus and, being sick of all the torrents I had opened, I decided to select them all and click the little red x to remove them all. However azureus seems to have deleted them all instead. I say seems because upon using the df command to see if any harddrive space has been freed up, I see that none has, thus azureus has done something to me ~/.Azureus/downloads/ directory that I cannot even begin to fathom. Thanks you for any help.

Holy crap I don't know what the hell just happened. Azureus seems to have moved/renamed the entire directory and saved to another user's home directory. I guess that solves my problem, however it is still unfathomable. Amazing, simply amazing.

that is very odd that it would even have the permissions to do that. If what you say is true, it could have the potential of being a major security flaw. Are you running azuerus as root or setuid root?

I would be inclined to say that at some point I probably did something with permissions that I shoudn't have, most likely when I was setting up an account for ftp. I already got read of the user, as it wasn't necesarry, and have since deleted the user's home directory. It's probably not azureus at all, just I did something really, really weird a while ago thinking it would never come back to haunt me, then it came back to haunt me.
