Bug#469499: kpilot: events show up on wrong days after sync
I have been having this problem for a long time, through multiple versions
of kpilot and Debian. It's made my IBM WorkPad C3 (a rebranded Palm Vx, I
believe) almost unusable, especially since the internal battery ran down
recently and I had to re-sync everything with Kontact.
After this re-sync, which essentially wrote entirely new events to the
WorkPad, I was able to see exactly what was going on:
- Yesterday (Tuesday) I had a recurring monthly meeting (first Tuesday of
each month). It shows up on the WorkPad as being a recurring meeting on the
Wednesday but at the correct time.
- Thursday, I have a recurring monthly meeting (first Thursday of each
month) which again showed up a day late.
- A one-off event for this Friday showed up correctly.
- A recurring meeting on the second friday of each month showed up on the
second Saturday instead.
I have similar results for dates in February so this is not related to the
leap year. All my recurring events are showing up wrong while one-off
events show up correctly on the WorkPad. The recurring events seem to
calculate the day of week one day late then base the meeting date on that
bad date. This put my meeting for the second Friday 6 days early since the
month started on a Saturday.
