I don't think so.

I'm using an emacs version from http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/.
At first there were no md5sum binary found. So i installed the coreutils
(and diffutils) from gnuwin32. Seems that these utils don't work
fine with emacs.

I can try this, but seems to be difficult, because removing the file
from the agende-file-list and adding it another time sometimes solves
the issue.

Invoking C-c C-x RET p from one file which begins with
# Time-stamp: "2012-09-27 Do 01:17:19 (re)"
#+LAST_MOBILE_CHANGE: 2012-03-12 21:40:01
#TAGS: PHONE(p) URGENT(u) MAIL(e) Anwesenheit (a) Musik (m) Orgel (o) Cello (i)

I got an error, then I deleted line 2  
#+LAST_MOBILE_CHANGE: 2012-03-1221:40:01
the error no more occured.

After this i copied the line in another agenda-file from wich invoking
org-mobile-push does not result in an error.

The error did not occur with this changed file.
Then I copied the line in the first file and started org-mobile-push:

The error didn't occur further. So i am confused.

I'll play with this, but i think this will take much time. 

Do you speak german? Im thinking, you can better understand me, if i
could write in german.
