Deluge: ‘PreferencesManager’ object has no attribute ‘do_config_set_func’

Deluge is a torrent client. Some days ago I updated it to latest version (1.3.12) on my ArchLinux and the Scheduler plugin was not working as it should.

I found the following error in the log

AttributeError: 'PreferencesManager' object has no attribute 'do_config_set_func'

In the forum title Scheduler locked in slow mode, the reply stated

Yes sorry I make a mistake in 1.3.12 when fixing another issue. Here is the fix applied for next release: http://git.deluge-torrent.org/deluge/commit/?h=1.3-stable&id=cdf301601fe71bd697f3796cf0a5656d437d140e

Thunderbird and OpenLDAP

I setup OpenLDAP according to the archlinux wiki and this page

The server was up, search ok and I was ready to setup thunderbird to use the LDAP. 

I setup thunderbird and then no entry in the view. I thought it was some fault on the configuration. I tried JXplorer, ldapaddrbook, apache directory studio and couldn’t find the problem. 

I stumble upon this page via google and I stop scratching my head and pulling my hair. 

This is a thunderbird-bug – not an OpenLDAP issue:

ldap-address-book gets synchronized but you do not see any entries in the overview

but it is there when you start typing in an address of a ldap-reciepient…so it’s there but you have to start searching by typing in some letters

plz consult the mozilla-people for further infos and bug-cleanup as this is a third-party application developed by them
