I had a private communication with a owncloud dev and they pointed out, that 
the warning is related with a feature called checksumming at server. ownClous 
Server adds this with 10.0.0, Nextcloud does not have this feature. But 
owncloud-client < 2.5.0 does not use checksumming, too. From my experience  
2.4.1 worked great together with Nextcloud.  I'll hope I can disclosure the 
conversation, so we make a good decision. But let's move this side 
conversation to pkg-owncloud-maintainers at alioth-lists.debian.net, to not 
pollute the bugreport with this conversation.
