That's what the test setup is for. At the moment I try to keep my address book 
(KDE kontact) and bookmarks.xml (KDE konqueror) synchronised between 2 
laptops that most of the time are simultaneously online. Under normal 
circumstances this works flawless (thumbs up!), except when I forget to 
authenticate on 1 on of them (reintegration issues that I am still not able 
to repair) and now this (accidental) server crash.

Thx for your input!

If 'but' was any useful, there would be a logic operator.
