Description Christian Stadelmann 2017-05-30 07:31:50 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. mark a task as done
2. close gnome-todo
3. open gnome-todo

What should happen:
task should be marked as done after restarting gnome-todo and thus be hidden

What happens:
Task is still present

Installed versions:

Additional info:
In evolution, the task is not being marked as completed after being checked ("done") in gnome-todo.
In evolution, marking a task as completed works fine. This is correctly displayed in gnome-todo after restart too.

This issue might be a result of bug #773854.
