Error: No such file or directory (filename containing question mark)

Hi, I'm trying to download a files on a Windows-based filesystem and the torrent contains one file with a question mark in the name.

Since this is an illegal character on Windows-based filesystem, the torrent stops downloading with an error. Changing the priority to Do Not Download doesn't solve the issue. Any possible workaround?

Can you rename said file through Deluge? You can do that by double clicking on the name or highlighting it and then hitting F2.

The do not download trick probably isn't working because you would also need to mark the file before and the file after as well. The last piece of the previous file as well as the first piece of the next file will overlap.
