I'm actually not sure if this works for the torrent file, never tried but it does work for the md5 checksum file. You could also completely remove that line for the image file.
The .ffp checksum file reported no problems, because it only checks the flac files.
The double quotes are the problem with the missing file, and I have tested the renaming of the file. I guess what I wonder about is that the last flac file says "4/5 matching pieces" but that file tests OK when testing and checking the ffp file (which also supposedly has missing pieces). So, my thought it that when generating the torrent file, the data to be torrented is not split on file boundaries and therefore a "piece" could contain multiple files or parts of multiple files and the inability to find the file with the bad name throws an error for the pieces contained in the other files as well, even though those files are really OK.

Does that make sense?

If that is the case, correcting the filename and the torrent file as you suggested should correct the entire issue. I will try to test that.

Thanks for the help.
