Question rtorrent: Cannot move completed files...


As far is I understand rtorrent is capable of moving completed files to another directory. I have a directory "incomplete" and "complete" and ofcourse after downloading the files must be moved to "complete".
So I googled it and came to the following solution:

# These are the relevant lines of .rtorrent.rc
directory = /home/ackzsel/downloads/rtorrent/incomplete
on_finished = move_complete,"execute=mv,-u,$d.get_base_path=,/home/ackzsel/downloads/rtorrent/complete/ ;d.set_directory=/home/ackzsel/downloads/rtorrent/complete/"
Problem is it doesn't work. No action is taken and all files stay in "incomplete". I verified the directory names, they do exist. Can anybody see what I'm doing wrong here? Help would be very much appreciated.
