Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Using Evolution data server libebook function 'e_book_get_changes' never reports any change.

Problem can be reproduces as follows:
- run the sample test program, it reports 'no changes'
- make some change in Evolution address book
- run the sample test program again, it still reports 'no changes'

Expected results: second invocation of test program should report 'some changes'

Source code for the test program:

#include <glib-object.h>
#include <e-book.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
 GError* gerror = NULL;
 EBook* ebook = NULL;
 GList* glist = NULL;
 ebook = e_book_new_system_addressbook(&gerror);
 if (gerror)
  fprintf(stderr, "e_book_new_system_addressbook error\n");
 e_book_open(ebook, TRUE, &gerror);
 if (gerror)
  fprintf(stderr, "e_book_open error\n");
 e_book_get_changes(ebook, "changestest", &glist, &gerror);
 if (gerror)
  fprintf(stderr, "e_book_get_changes error\n");
 if (glist)
  fprintf(stderr, "some changes\n");
  fprintf(stderr, "no changes\n");

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
