Renaming sub-folders in torrent to "." (dot) or ".." (dot dot) no longer moves the files inside out of the folder. This worked in qB 3 but not qB 4 #11340

Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

Windows 4.x

What is the problem

Since verison 4, qBitorrent no longer has the ability to rename torrent folders and subfolders to . or .. to send the files to the root of that torrent or the root or the next level up.

What is the expected behavior

In qBittorrent 2 and 3, renaming a subfolder in a torrent to . moved the files inside up a level, to the root of that particular folder. Renaming a subfolder in a torrent to .. went one level further up.

Steps to reproduce

Rename a folder to . or .. in qBittorrent 4. The files will not move. Clicking on another torrent and back to the one you tried this on will show that the folder names have been reset to their original names.

Extra info(if any)
