    • Activity feed contains only 1000 last events. All Deleted events are filtered out.
    • There is a known issue in the Android Document provider. Steps to reproduce:
      1. Open the Gmail app (for example, the bug affects other apps too)
      2. Add attachment through the Document Provider (not cached on SD card)
