torrent files removed before external program is run on torrent

There is a rare occurrence where, if a torrent is very active, you can reach your set share limit and if you set files to be deleted the torrent will be removed before the "Run external program on torrent completion" can occur.

I have my external program set up to copy the torrent to another HDD but if the share limit is reached the file will be deleted before it can be copied.

I think the only way around this is to change the share setting to time limited instead of ratio limited. But it would be better if the qbt would check if the "run external program on torrent completion" was set and not delete files until that program as completed running.
