I'm also French, living in Brussels. The second problem never  
happened to me (I don't know why), but I sometimes get the first one  
(not often, "ouf !"). However, synchronisation is always very, very  
slow. Maybe if you keep the iDisk synchronisation activated, but  
manually and not automatically, it would be better, but I haven't  
tried to use it this way yet.
