Backups configuration duplicated folders

Bug Description

Ubuntu 15.04
unity-control-center 15.04.0+15.04.20150410-0ubuntu1

Just a small UI bug.
I'm using the Backups UI from Settings/System to backup files to a network share.
I've removed the ~/Downloads folder from the 'Folders to ignore' section.
When I open the Backups UI now for the first time, the folders in 'Folders to save' and 'Folders to ignore' are correct.
But when I go back to All Settings and then open Backups again, each folder in these sections will be shown twice.

I can confirm this in 16.04 also in two different computers.

@everyone affected: To check if this is the same problem reported in bug #1599662, I would like to know if this is reproducible or if the duplicate folders vanish sometimes as in that bug.

Naël (nathanael-naeri) wrote :

Not reproducible every time in my case. Sometimes the folders are listed twice, sometimes once. In both the include and exclude lists.

This bug and bug 1599662 are probably duplicates indeed.

Also: I cannot reproduce the bug at all on Trusty (deja-dup 30.0-0ubuntu4.1, duplicity 0.6.23-1ubuntu4.1), only when building from source (current revision 1575), and the OP reports that against Vivid (deja-dup 32.0-0ubuntu5), so perhaps check the changes introduced between these versions first. Or I could just have been lucky.

Can someone affected please provide the following? Thank you!

The file /tmp/deja-dup.gsettings after running the following line (you may want to scrub the file of any incriminating file names or details):
    gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.DejaDup > /tmp/deja-dup.gsettings

Still broken in Ubuntu 18.04.

Command "gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.DejaDup" doesn't show duplicate entries even though the GUI does.

I have been seeing this as well. It affects both "Folders to save" and "Folders to ignore". Ubuntu 18.04, version: 37.1-2fakesync1.

Do you have specific steps you follow to trigger the issue? Is there any warning about deja-dup in the journalctl log?
