The normal user id.

If there was a UI, there certainly would be such a button. The way it is
now, users have to enter "syncevolution <server>" in a shell and then
could do an "rm -r /var/tmp/SyncEvolution*" after ensuring that the log
is no longer needed.

In case someone is worried about filling up the internal flash, the
directory can be changed to something which resides on the flash card by
changing spds/syncml/config.txt:logdir. There's also a feature to keep
the last n logs.

There's no possibility to turn of the logging yet; there simply was no
need for this due to its origin as a desktop application where a few MB
on a hard disk are tolerable... obviously this needs to be changed for
