I was conducting a little test with intentionally misnamed rar files. Quickpar will auto-recognize them and will rename/repair whenever needed. Not so with the par2.exe included with Sabnzbd.
Here's what quickpar does. Very much wanted:
Included with Sabnzbd are commandline versions of the par2 tool that seem to date back to the original 2003-07-15 (!!!!!) version from Peter Brian Clements (only treated with Intel Threading Building Blocks):

Also: I can not find any commandline switch that may force something like quickpar does. Not in the original, not in the tbb rebuild.
Have I missed some options? Should I use another par commandline tool?
Is the following not related to this problem (I read it like it is):
What's new in SABnzbd 0.7.6 Beta 1:
November 10th, 2012
· Properly handle par2-sets that were renamed after creation by the poster
I use SABnzb 0.7.9.
