No. My company is offering you (and everyone else) to have a deeper look
into the problem, if it is important enough for you to spend money on it.
The reason for this is that I have lost interest and motivation for looking
into this particular problem because I'm pretty sure that it is a bug in
your distribution. So the only clean solution would be to fix the
distribution, but I can't do that since I'm not the distributor.
The only thing I could do in csync2 is _working_around_ that problem. And
it looks like that would be hackish, ungly and technically the wrong thing
to do (the right thing would be to kick the distributor so he is fixing the
Usually such conceptionally breaindead workaround-fixes are only found in
the world of proprietary software. And they are not funny to write and less
funny to maintain. So I'm not doing it for free..
