No it hasn't been fixed because I cannot reproduce the problem at all.
The next release will contain extra logging to get more diagnostic data.
Only if that brings more info, I can fix it.

How does disabling folder renaming break nzbdrone? Are there any other side-effects of disabling folder renaming? Looking at it another way, what are the advantages of enabling folder renaming anyways (default)?

I have mine disabled for now..and the unpack folders are not getting left behind any longer. But I am getting some strange behavior I cannot describe too easily yet with Sickbeard. It may or may not be related to making this change. I have not seen a new release to try since the problem originally occurred.

I don't know about NzbDrone, but the concept of having a prefix is meant to help indexing programs.
The idea is that indexing programs should be told to avoid anything starting with"_UNPACK_".
If you're not using such software, then renaming isn't really necessary, except that you won't have a visual indication
of whether a folder contains usable material.

Thanks shypike for your explanation and help in suggesting a viable workaround for this problem until you can gather more telemetry.
