[Synckolab] [Citadel Support] SyncKolab Calendar syncing problems

Hi guys,

I send this mail both to the mailing-lists of citadel and synckolab.

I got a workaround for my earlier problem, but it's ugly:

You can sync calendar items both ways if you DO NOT use whitespaces in
the titles of the events. A sync with synckolab will locally delete all
events that contain whitespaces in their title/summary. The sync will
not delete "whitespaced" events from the citadel-server.

Do you experience the same issues, so I should create a bug-report on this?

regards,
Henning

PS: I run citadel 8.11, thunderbird 11/12/13 and synckolab 2.0.1 and
nightly with fitting lightning 1.3/1.4/1.5. It seems to be a very basic
and general problem.
