From: Taylor Sutton
Subject: bug#18414: org-mobile checksum stuff supressing errors and using inconsistent checksum
Date: Fri, 5 Sep 2014 14:00:29 -0400

Two related bugs. As far as I understand, in org-mobile.el, part of
the org-mobile code is writing checksums of the files to be sync'd to
checksums.dat, and the checksum function is (supposed to be) governed by
the custom variable org-mobile-checksum-binary. However, for the index
file, the agenda file, and the capture file, the checksums are always
computed with the elisp md5 function instead. I am not sure if this
particular part should actually be considered a bug. But it affected the
next part.

If the custom org-mobile-checksum-binary is set wrong (in my case, I did
not quote the filepath which has spaces in it) then in the function
'org-mobile-copy-agenda-files, after running the
'shell-command-to-string, the output which was, for me on windows,

'c:/program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file

and that did not satisfy the when statement's string-match, and so the
checksums of my files were not written to checksums.dat - but there was
no message of any kind indiciating this to me as a user, and I didn't
realize what was happening until I delved into org-mobile.el. It was
especially confusing because some checksums were being written due to
the hard-coded checksum function described above.

Anyway so, in sum (haha) if there are any issues running the
shell-command-to-string inside of org-mobile-copy-agenda-files, those
issues seem to be silently suppressed, leading to checksums not being
written and files not syncing WITHOUT any indication of what's going
on. Expected behavior is that I get some indication of what happened so
I can fix it.
