Appologies if this has been reported before, but I noticed a bug in 
BT today.  Someone had seeded a file with a name containing a 
question mark character '?'.  When BT tried to create this file, the 
OS obviously wouldn't let it, and I wasn't able to download the file.

I think BT should analyze filenames before trying to create them, and 
if there are invalid characters it should rename them, or prompt the 
user for action.

Platform: Win XP
