Hi. The mobility server is great but occasionally it just grinds to a halt the Groupwise connector stops working. We are running 2.0.1 build 53

I saw this fix, and though that looked a possibility our Groupwise server is running 8.0.2hp2 (going to be upgraded to 2014 in about a month) Anyway, I tried doing the below change and it basically would not talk at all. is chunksize correct as it's all lower case and just about every other setting in the connector has some uppercase in them? It just would not start the connector at all with chunksize in place when i removed it again it worked fine (although it took about 2 hours going slow to catch up with everything).
