is syncitems working right?

update doesnt seem to be working correctly with syncitems.

1. find your favorite lj sync program.
2. sync your journal.
3. make a update to your last event.
4. then sync your journal again..
5. sometimes syncitems returns the update and sometimes it doesnt.

anyone else notice this?

I've noticed.. after a few more tests that syncitems doesnt respond with a update action.. if only the subject of the event has changed.
if you edit the event (or the body of the post).. syncitems will return a update action.

I dont know if this is a bug.. but i would think that if you just edited the subject of a event that, that would be considered a update.

Q: LJ.XMLRPC.postevent

Can't understand, how to calculate public item ID to make URL of just posted event. The "anum" parameter in return value of LJ-server doesn't contain number which I can use in URL as itemid= after posting, it contains some another digits. What is this digits and how can I calculate ID to make an URL?
