Hey Sandra,
I had the same problem. Maybe the json was not parsing the file name correctly. I tried storing filename temporarily in another variable. I observed that the filename with spaces was problem somehow. So I replaced spaces with "_" in the filename before "curl -u" statement. I did it like this: TR_TORRENT_NAME="${TR_TORRENT_NAME// /_}". Same thing with the $TR_TORRENT_NAME. Passing it was success and I got the correct notification.

Ok so scratch that. I'm encountering Sandra's issue with and without the super user article. What am I doing wrong? It must be a " or something simple.

Sorry about that, @ssandras and @andycarver101; I never got a notification about these comments.
Shell $VARIABLE expansion doesn’t work when you use single quotes. I’ve updated the gist to use double quotes instead (which means escaping all the JSON double quotes).
