This is a known issue with Google: the server decides to end the
after sending 50 contacts. Because refresh-from-server always starts
from scratch, you never get all contacts. Also happens with other
clients, see for example http://productforums.google.com/forum/#
If you change to sync=one-way-from-server, then you use incremental
syncing, which might work.
Works great, thanks!
BTW it seems that syncevo is quite tolerant to file items renamed. This
is great too!
P.S. it seems that this mailing list is setup wrong: Reply To Group
doesn't work, which isn't great :(
