Package: evolution
Version: 2.21.90-0ubuntu1
Severity: important

In evolution, I wish to enter several identical appointments for the
month, which do not fall
cleanly on a particular day of the week: the exceptions for missing
days I note using the
exceptions entry method provided, so that they do not appear, and then
I copy an existing
appointment to the non-regular days which do not fit the regular
meeting method that
evolution offers. However, the paste operation hangs the calendar, and
it either crashes on
its own or I force close it.

When I now look at my appointments in the time/date calendar in the
GNOME panel (top right in
Ubuntu Hardy default) I see that the copied appointments are in fact
there, *but* the
appointment appears twice (e.g., two rows saying the same thing). This
does not manifest when I open the actual calendar full-screen, nor do
I see a way to edit
away the double entry.

I also note that when I change a regular appointment from N entries to
N-1 entries the
calendar hangs and the appointment number is not changed, so I need to
remove the individual
appointment manually using the right-mouse menu (delete current
appointment instance).
