Ubuntu 16.10 - Client frequently loses connection settings after reboot

help

#1

I've been using the desktop client for about 6 months without any issue, but over the last few weeks to a month this issue has been happening frequently. It's not every time but only sometimes which makes me think that the settings file is being corrupted in some way by shutdown if certain tasks are running at the time. I am using the official owncloud-client package from the repo, not Ubuntu's version.

Steps to reproduce
1. Set up own cloud folder synchronization
2. Sync files
3. Reboot computer

Expected behaviour
The folders i set up to sync should continue to sync

Actual behaviour
About half the time the client has "forgotten" all its configuration settings after a reboot and needs to be set up again like new. The files are still all there, just the config gets lost.

Client configuration
Client version: 2.2.4
Client operating system: Ubuntu 16.10

Server configuration
Operating system: Ubuntu Server 16.04
Web server: Nginx
Database: Postgresql
PHP version: 7.0
ownCloud version (see ownCloud admin page): 9.1.0 (stable)
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install: Fresh Install

Can you try to cat the settings file when this happens again so we can see what is in there?

Maybe you can also have the client run with --logdir and give us a log on when this happens?

It finally happened again. Here it is:

cat .local/share/data/ownCloud/owncloud.cfg
[General]
optionalDesktopNotifications=true
