Thanks for that bug Number.
I can now sync again. The problems seem to have been related to a number of things.
1. The solution to the original error relating to traversing the xml, is to move the database that resides on the webDAV server out of the way and re-sync. (As described by OmniFocus support via email)
2. The bad gateway and a number of the other issues seem related but they may or may not be. For some reason my server is occasionally not reachable using its name gutenberg.local by Omnifocus, in fact not reachable by name from my laptop in a terminal window, though the other 3-4 machines on my network can all ping the server using its local name, and my iCal client can still update the published calendars using the local name.
Because of this I changed the address of the webDAV server within Omnifocus and the iPhone from http://gutenberg.local/myStuff
. This change was not enjoyed at all by OmniFocus and this lead to the Bad Gateway problem. (I wonder if not being able to use an IP address is a WebDAV issue or an OmniFocus issue? Seems like it should be possible.)
So now I have returned the entry within OmniFocus to http://gutenberg.local/myStuff
and when OmniFocus has issues I simply turn my laptop wireless off and then on again and OmniFocus works.
