[Kolab-devel] Palm sync/KPilot oddities...

Hi all,

I know that syncing Kontact with a Palm (or any other PDA, for that matter) 
isn't top priority at the moment, but I made a few observations in the 
enterprise35 client which I'd like to share:

- The first thing I noticed is that enterprise35 does not switch to offline 
mode when syncing (proko2 does, AFAIR). There is a *LOT* of "Calendar: 
Uploading to server" activity going on during the sync. It almost looks as if 
Kontact is interacting with the server for each and every event, making the 
whole process quite slow
- Syncing as such worked a lot better in proko2. With enterprise35, I 
frequently get conflicts between PC and PDA, conflicts between PC and server 
and double events. It looks like Kontact is not able to keep track of the 
event IDs properly when faced with the Palm connection. Also, I see a *lot* 
of "dummy messages" showing up in Calendar - on an agenda of abut 500 events 
I can get as many as 2000-4000 dummy messages after a sync. So far, I cannot 
reliably reproduce these effects - but they definitely happen more often that 
with proko2.
