All day event in a ics file are skewed

Artic Wolf
Group,
I am relatively new to Sunbird so it could be a known issue, but i
couldn't find anything related to this in the newsgroup or defect tracker.

When you publish a remote calendar (ics) on a FTP or WebDAV server and
then subscribe to this calendar. Create an all day event, let's say on
the 17th, close Sunbird, re-open it, you will see the "all day" event at
the right place (on the 17th), but if you open the event, the "From -
To" dates are on a day earlier, so in this case on the 16th. If you do
the same thing with a local calendar, you won't see this problem. And if
you look in the ics file, the dates are correct.

So is this a new problem or a known issue?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Brock,

Thanks for the reply. That looks like it, I probably didn't use the
right keywords to search.

Anyway, it doesn't look like anyone is actively working on this issue,
so I'll be patient...

Thanks!
