Bug Description

I created a UDF ~/Documents on computer 1 using Nautilus (Synchronize with Ubuntu One)... On computer2 the client created a UDF and synchronized all the files. The UDF was visible on the web.

On computer 1, I deleted the UDF in Nautilus (Stop Synchronizing with Ubuntu One).
The UDF was deleted (based on the syncdaemon.log) and was no longer visible on the WEB.

On computer 2, the UDF still remained even after a couple of restarts. u1sdtool --list-folders shows the folder as a UDF.


Need 2 computers with the same Ubuntu One account

1. Computer 1 - Open ~/Home, right-click on ~/Documents and select "Ubuntu One > Synchronize This Folder"
2. Computer 2 - Ensure ~/Documents is now being synced by Ubuntu One ($ u1sdtool --list-folders)
3. Computer 1 - Right-click on ~/Documents and select "Ubuntu One > Stop Synchronizing This Folder"
4. Computer 2 - Open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and run: u1sdtool --list-folders

Result: Computer 2 shows "subscribed=True" for ~/Documents from the u1sdtool --list-folders command

Expected result: Computer 2 returns "No folders" from the u1sdtool --list-folders command


If I try to put something in the folder, there is an exception on the Upload (syncdaemon-exceptions.log)

A workaround is to execute: u1sdtool --refresh-volumes on the computer 2.
