Default Re: tinkering with mobile backup saved in sql database

I already tried to make a complete backup of the phone with an older desktop software V4, and opened the ipd file with magic berry. It is unenccrypted, and the Blackberry Maps entries are there, however MagicBerry cannot display or export them. If I open the file with a hex editor, I can see fragments.

Regarding my original problem with the Blackberry, it happend again today. No PIM sync, and, an enterprise activation process which started itself (?), but does nothing. I can change wireless sync to on, but, it wont sync anything but emails.
Other users on the Server are running fine.

I tried to delete and undelete the Desktop(Sync) servicebook, this triggers a synchronization, but again it will not sync addressbook, and, again will fail to sync BBM contacts.

I found, that on the server today the BlackberrySync Service unexpectedly quit today about 20 times.
There is a KB article on this, ( KB31894-The BlackBerry Synchronization Service restarts unexpectedly ), but it relates to BES 5.0 SP3. This could be an out of memory situation when someone has a large number of Saved email messages.

No fix is availible, no resolution time frame availible, so I guess it is stil present in BES 5.0.4 - anyone knows if this is true ?

I dont have a large number of saved email messages, but, a large number of phone-history entries.
The KB article recommends to erase the complete Wireless backup. But if I would do this, I would loose all my precious Blackberry maps placemarks. Impossible for me.
