File name "[:)].ass" contains invalid characters; marked as invalid


I’m using syncthing on Windows for some time and I noticed really annoying problem. Some time ago, I had file named “[:-)].ass” in one of my repos and, well, Windows client went nuts.

It reports this file 4-7 times every time I login to webui. I renamed that file long time ago, I removed it manually from .stversions on all nodes, I ever tried to remove repository from Windows machine, delete index and add it again. It wiped entire repository on all nodes and then reported invalid characters in [:-)].ass :frowning:

Is there any way how to get rid of that message?

It’s a bug. Try the latest build (“development snapshot” link above) for hopefully a fix.

Thanks, it looks like latest build helped.
