Bug#718813: KDE "migrates" something on the first login of a freshly created user

Package:  kdepim-runtime
Version:  4:
User:     debian-edu@lists.debian.org
UserTags: debian-edu

When logging in with a freshly created user on a freshly installed
machine, installed using the Debian Edu Roaming Workstation profile
based on the current Debian testing (Jessie), a popup show up at the end of the login process with
this content:

  KResource Migration Tool

  [i] Trying to migrate 'Default Address Book'...
   V  Migration of 'Default Address Book' succeeded.


The same happen with Debian Edu based on Wheezy/stable.  As there is no
address book KDE setup in the user home directory when the user log in
for the first time, I expect there to be nothing to migrate, and thus
expect there to be no popup about some strange migration.

I tried to run 'ps -ef|grep mig' when the popup was shown, and after I
had closed it, and discovered that the process 'kres-migration
--interactive-on-change --type contact --omit-client-bridge' was running
when the popup was showing and no longer running when the popup was
gone.  I thus suspect it was responsible for the popup and assign this
bug to the kdepim-runtime package.  I might be mistaken.  Please
reassign if some other package is the cause.

The user home directory created on a roaming workstation is fairly
standard, with these files present:


The user-places.xbel and .gtk-bookmarks files are created when the user
is created with a CIFS mount pointer to the central home directory.
Perhaps one of them is involved in this issue?

Happy hacking
