Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.0.2 GNU/Linux

If on linux, libtorrent and Qt version

1.1.5.0
5.9.3

What is the problem

After I remove some torrents and later on quit qB, some of them will reappear and begin to download all over again upon a restart.

What is the expected behavior

Removed torrents should remain removed.

Steps to reproduce

It's random and not really reproducible. Add some torrents, let them finish, remove them, restart... some of them will reappear.

I've also noticed this on Windows. Removed 3 torrents and 2 came back after relaunching. I then removed both of them and 1 came back after relaunching. After removing the final one and relaunching, none came back.

@DerekZiemba @zpoison thanks for confirming! I've noticed that there's a smaller chance of torrents re-appearing if you first pause them and then remove them. But some will still come back.. but not as often.

Anyway, this is not as annoying bug as some of the others but it's still bad.

Windows 8.1 / qbt 4.0.4
Same problem.
I have ~1400 torrents and add/delete them often, it's very annoying.
Problem is kinda random, I'll try to reproduce it and post more info.

Btw, what should I check? After I delete torrent from list qbt should remove *.torrent and *.fastresume files from BT_backup folder and that's all? Or they can ressurect from some other cache file or something?

This continues to happen. qBittorrent 4.1.1 - Windows 7.
It's not random for me, everytime I delete a file (on the OS) that I torrented , whenever I open qBittorrent it starts torrenting it back. Evidently it's checking all files on start and when it notices a torrent is incomplete, it "resumes" download. It should automatically mark torrents that have already been completed and then keep it from trying to torrent them even if a file is missing.
