Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

1. I have a schedule that was registered in a especific calendar.
2. I created this schedule with recurence (it does not matter with wich type of recurrence, as I noticed the bug with diferent types of recurrence, but for this scenario lets assume 1 day per week, monday, from 9pm to 10pm, lasting forever).
3. Later, I notice that I have to change the calendar of this schedule. So, I edit it and in the calendar combo box I choose other calendar. And save. When asked about if I want to change only this occurence or all of them, I choose all of them.
4. All other entries of this schedule, except that in the first day that it occurs, gets hidden in any type of view of the Evolution calendar (day, month, week, etc).

- after all the steps above, if i try to edit this schedule and change the note field, for example, when I save it Evolution asks me if I want to change only this entry or all of them; so, there's still other entries (recurrence) of it, although they are not being displayed.
- when I open my calendar.ics file, in .evolution/calendar/local/system, and search for this schedule resume, I noticed that it is private, instead of public (really don't know if this information helps...). In time: I do not save this .ics file.

(sorry for my english, as I use Evolution in portuguese-BR and some key words I don't know exactly how they are in the english translation)

The way I'm fixing this bug is by deleting this schedule (and again Evolution here asks me if is to delete that entry only or all of them, as it has recurrence, and I answer all), and creating it again in the correct calendar. But this is a little bit annoying, as if I have some exception dates in this schedule I have to first write them down to reproduce in the new schedule, for to keep my data correct.

I have this problem also.

Well, I think I do. Its just my evolution crashes when I try and reproduce this. But before it crashes I see the effects you refer to so therefore I will confirm this.
