Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 800106
korganizer reminder daemon suffers from amnesia after power off
Last modified: 2012-06-13 09:21:41 EDT
Description of problem:
When one defers reminders and subsequently turns off the computer, the reminders are forgotten when the computer is turned back on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Wait for a reminder to occur, then defer it to a later time. Turn off the computer and restart it sometime later. The reminder will never recur: it is forgotten.
Steps to Reproduce:
This used to work in 4.7, but in 4.8 it no longer worked. I never mentioned it, as 4.8 was under development and this seemed somewhat trivial, but now that kde has advanced to 4.8, this should be working properly, as it used to.
Interesting, bug upstream if you get a chance.
And/or re-test against 4.8.1 coming to -testing repos hopefully this week.

Such regressions should always be reported IMMEDIATELY. Now:
* upstream already tagged 4.8.1, and this is not going to be a release blocker for upstream, so any upstream fix can go into 4.8.2 at the earliest.
* we are preparing to push 4.8.1 to Fedora 16 and so this regression might end up reaching the stable updates soon. (We cannot wait forever for someone to maybe, some time, report a regression.)
It is really too late to report regressions now. Next time please report them when there's still time to fix them!
Oh, and have you already filed this at https://bugs.kde.org/ ? If not, please do so NOW! (Upstream can only fix what they know about.)
OK, guys. I files a bug report upstream. Sorry I didn't mention it earlier. I thought with all of the active development going on and all of the alpha and beta prereleases, etc, it would be nitpicking to worry about this.
Can we please have the link to the upstream report?

We'll continue to track this upstream.
