I use ubuntu intrepid and i've install synce from the ppa.launchpad.net. my version is 0.13. My timezone is the same on ppc and ubuntu.
When you sync with wm6.1, the extract birthday from ppc is out to date. The date is different for one day if the contact have been first created in the ppc.
Example: the birthday of my contact in the ppc is 2nd october and the day extract is 1st october.
If you sync a new contact from evolution to ppc, the transfered date seem to be ok.
I've another problem. When you sync a new contact, the order of the fields is not respected in evolution 2.24. When you create manualy a contact. The first number field is the professional number and the second number field is the cellular number.
When you sync a new contact in evolution, the first field is change in a cellular type with the phone number registered. But the second field stay to be a cellular field with a blank number. So when you see the contact card, you don't have cellular number. You need to open the contact to see the cellular number or change the type of the second field to "professional".
