syncitems: bad itemids

syncitems is returning BAD itemid. It seems as though the itemids syncitems sends is actually the "post number" from that users journal. In other words, if I am syncing my 14th post, the itemid it returns will be "14". While this itemid seems to reference properly from syncitems to getevents this itemid cannot be used to reference the entry via the web, nor can it be used to reference the comments page for that item. Additionally, there is no new field present in the return information that gives the REAL itemid.

This makes it absolutely impossible to use this information for anything other than backing up LJ data, and even then, makes it difficult as, the entries themselves are backed up, but there is no way to reference the comments for that item. Am I overlooking something, or was this something that was overlooked?
