Yesterday I used syncevolution to push my my address book out to Google
Contacts via SyncML. In a subsequent run, some contacts had photos
auto-added by Google.
This has partially broken sync with my S40 phone. It imposes a max
message size of 3k, and the images push those contacts over the limit.
Syncevolution notices this:
WARNING: outgoing item is larger (5334) than MaxObjSize (3000) of remote
-> suppress now/mark for resend
The sync mostly works, but takes around 15 minutes to finish. The
first time, my phone's progress indicator stuck at 95% complete. On
subsequent syncs, the phone finishes quickly but syncevo still waits
for 15 minutes. Oddly, the times in the log do not reflect this.
I don't care about having the photos associated with the contacts. Can
they be stripped out before contacts are sent to the phone? The only
config option on the phone side is to require a username/password.
