Calendar preview reports the wrong date for meetings

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I receive an ics calendar attachment in email, the inline preview claims it is for a meeting tomorrow (Wednesday), but when I add it to my calendar it is for Friday.

The DTSTART and DEND fields in the ics are for Friday, so there appears to be a bug in the inline email preview.

Attached is an ics file for an event scheduled for 2008-02-01, and how it appears in my email on 2008-01-29 - suggesting the event is on 2008-01-30.

Running 2.21.5-0ubuntu1 under hardy (preview).

If I load up the mail today, it shows the correct event date as "Friday, February 1". It appears the problem is/was with whatever function interprets the date into "Tomorrow" etc.

On Thursday, the date was given as "Friday" rather than "Tomorrow". The event today is given as "Today".
