4.0b33: issues with new e-mail accounts

edited November 2012 in iOS Beta

I was playing around in the new beta and tried to enter the information for a new email account.
I noticed a few things that were weird:

Is this bug reproducible?
Well, it's consistently losing info and slow, but not always losing the same fields.

Which devices did this bug appear on and is it reproducible on any devices?
It was a systematic problem on my iPad 3, but I haven't had a chance to test on my iPhone

A quick summary of the bug:
I created a new email account entry and after saving, I noticed that some of the fields didn't display, more specifically, sometimes the Section field was lost, sometimes the Provider website.
In addition, switching between email accounts was painfully slow.

Detailed Step-by-step instruction on how to reproduce it:
- Create a new email account on the iPad version
- Populate the fields (don't forget Section and the Provider website)
- Save the entry
- Check the saved entry
- Check other entries

iOS 6.0.1, running in English

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the report. Are those data gone for good or it just doesn't show it until you refresh it by going back to Categories and viewing the item again?

    Did you use a password generator in those password fields inside the email items? I believe I know what the problem is and we're actually looking into this as this is a critical bug right now also affecting the Identity field.

    I didn't use the password generator as I was adding information for preexisting accounts.
    When I edited the entry, the fields in question were blank.


    (the forum keeps on being weird, I receive one notification out of two for some unknown reason).

    Hi Corentin,

    Sorry about the forum's notification, we always had problems with them and are working on finding better solutions for this.

    I was able to reproduce it, the devs are working on it but I don't have a timeframe on when it'll be fixed.

    Thanks for writing this up.

    Thanks a million for letting me know. At this point I'm not too worried about having an ETA for the fix. I just wanted to report the issue and I'm happy you managed to reproduce it (I hate intermittent or inconsistent bugs that are hard to reproduce).

    Hi Corentin,

    Can you test and see if b39 makes any differences in this area? We made some improvements related to this and was hoping if you can tell me if we're on the right track.
