Summary0003294: Integrated Mission Downloader has inconsistent mission handling (for some missions)
DescriptionI downloaded the latest mission (TheBuilderRoads by Obsttorte) via TDM itself.
The mission gets downloaded and can be installed and played. However it shows up on the list of 'Availlable downloads' all over again, right after the download completed successfully.

I have all TDM missions downloaded and the code which handles the mission info seems to have problems with 3 of them. However, TheBuilderRoad is the only one which keeps popping up on the 'Availlable Download' list.

Nevertheless, the handling of the mission info seems to be wrong and the 'missions.tdminfo' file contains 2 entries for some missions.

The Builder Roads - by Obsttorte
Deceptive Shadows - by Shadowhide
Vengeance for a Thief - by Sir Taffsalot
Steps To ReproduceOpen TDM and let it seek for new missions.
Select 'The Builder Road' and download it.
Right after the download is complete, TDM adds it also back to the 'Availlable downloads'

The reason for the duplicated entries and the "still downloadable" was that the mod name field on the server should contain only:

* lowercase (NOT "DeceptiveShadows" or "VFAT1")
* no special characters (so no "mission+something")
* no extension (so it is "broads", not "broads.pk4")

The code now corrects all these mistakes after downloading the mission info, so even when the fields are wrong on the server, it will still work in the menu.

People with this issue need probably to delete their fms/missions.tdminfo (or edit it and remove the double entries) to get the missions to work correctly.
