I think libkabc (which handles the addressbook directly) uses either fam or gamin to watch for changed files. When either kaddressbook or kmail changes something, it uses libkabc and I think libkabc calls back to the other program to tell that it should reread the file. Do you use libfam or libgamin on yoru system? Have you configured it to work across nfs? from some quick googling there might be some configuratins needed in order to have gamin and/or fam to work with nfs shares. > It's very likely that the problem can be reproduced with other types of > file systems. I actually don't think so. I have really tried to be evil to kaddressbook and kmail and the addressbooks without any success. > (It would be preferable if they could fix bugs properly instead of > disabling functionality.) To fix it in kde3.5 it requires a major libkabc rewrite - that will not be done for kde3.5 - but in kde4 it is a part of akonadi which should fix this. /Sune -- Do you know how to send the port? You neither should disable the login, nor can reset a utility for debugging a USB IRC FPU.
