What am I supposed to do with the: KNotes Migration Tool?

Version

4.13.2

Specifically note that this is not V.x.0. I know better than to even install that. I figure, however, that if a major screw up was allowed to slip into the ".0" that by ".2" that it will either be fixed or removed. WRONG.

and distribution

Linux from Scratch is a distribution.

info would probably help.

It said that it would take a quite a while to run.  Well, it has been
running about 6 hours (AMD 4400+) and it has eaten _ALL_ my alarms from
KAlarm.

KAlarm and KNotes are different apps.

Yes, but they both have *.ics files. I was rather surprised when I saw pop up messages about KAlarm when it was supposedly migrating KNotes files. I tried this again and apparently it was just a coincidence.

For me it helped killing and restarting KAlarm.

Didn't help.

I find that I still have the old files. Removing the new Akondi files and restarting KDE restored my alarms. But only once. Perhaps I was lucky or perhaps it was because there were active alarms pending.

So, basically, now I have two applets that I found useful that don't work. This is not what a user should expect on a STABLE release.
