Hello all,

I am reaching a point of extreme frustration with KPilot/Akonadi which is a 
shame, because I really like most of the things I see in KDE 4.2.  I followed 
the thread of a few weeks ago but was unabel to get anything out of it.

For the last week I have been unable to sync either Contacts or 
Calendar/ToDos.  This started as soon as Akonadi was introduced with KDE 4.2, 
via ubuntu-backports.  Here are my details:

  Treo 650
  Kubuntu Intrepid

  KPilot 5.2.0 (KDE 4.2.0)
  pilot-link 0.12.3
  KDE 4.2.00 (KDE 4.2.0)
  Qt 4.4.3

And here's what happens:

16:39:48 [Conduit kpilot-conduit-contacts] 
16:40:05 Invalid record mapping. Doing first sync.
16:40:05 Doing first sync. This may take a while.

At that point kpilotDaemon dies the death.  I run kpilotDaemon with debug=9 
and the resulting log is available.  I am reluctant to post it in a public 
spot as it contains all my appointments and contacts, but I would be happy to 
share it with the developers.

Thank you all in advance,

P.S. I tried syncing with a clean account, to no avail.
