Default Palm Client (2.9.9.3) has problems with work/home address

Hello!
I spend the whole day evaluating SyncML Servers (funambol, eGroupware, Synthesis c't Edition) in order to Sync Outlook (I think I'll choose the Nexthaus Client), SE 750i and Palm.

Best combination so far ist Synthesis Palm Client (2.9.9.3) and Synthesis c't Server. There is just one minor problem left:

Addresses on the palm always become work-addresses when I sync form Server to palm. If I edit the contact on the palm leaving the address as work-address and sync they change from home- to work-address on the server too. If I edit them again and change the type to home-address on the palm they become home-addresses on server again after I sync.

BTW: I just orderd a License-Key but on my Tungsten T5 I really need the beta version. Will v2.5 keys be valid for the upcomig stable version? I might still be able to cancel the order and wait for v3.0.
BTW2: The new beta 2.9.9.3 works with eGroupware again. 2.9.9.1 and 2.9.9.2 did not.

Greets,
Carsten

This is caused by the way how the ADR property is configured in the sample config that comes with the server:
Code:
<property name="ADR" values="7">
  <value index="0" field="ADR_H_POBOX"/>
  <value index="1" field="ADR_H_ADDTL"/>
  <value index="2" field="ADR_H_STREET"/>
  <value index="3" field="ADR_H_CITY"/>
  <value index="4" field="ADR_H_REG"/>
  <value index="5" field="ADR_H_ZIP"/>
  <value index="6" field="ADR_H_COUNTRY"/>
  <parameter name="TYPE" default="yes" positional="yes" show="yes">
    <value>
      <enum name="HOME"/>
      <enum name="WORK"/>
    </value>
    <position has="WORK" field="ADR_W_POBOX"/>
    <position field="ADR_H_POBOX"/> 
  </parameter>          
</property>
It only tags the work address as such, and treats everything that is not WORK as home address. That'll be ok with the Palm client, but it also sends the home address without the HOME tag.

Just change the second <position> line from above into:
Code:
<position shows="HOME" field="ADR_H_POBOX"/>
Or, if you strictly want only explicit HOME addresses to be stored in ADR_H_xxx fields:
Code:
<position has="HOME" field="ADR_H_POBOX"/>
This should do the trick

Yes, v2.5 keys work with the final 3.0 release (and with all betas)
