N900, Maemo 5, 2.2009.51-1
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Put attached file crash2.ics onto device
2. Open File Manager and click crash2.ics
3. Select any Calendar to import into
Calendar entries are imported
"Internal Error: Application 'Calendar' closed
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
I create the ics file by exporting from Oracle Calendar. I deleted entries
until I had isolated the one causing the crash. The result is the file
crash2.ics. The problem seems to be related to the RDATE field. If I delete it,
the crash does not occur.

Attempting to import into Calendar crashes the app
Attempting to import this ics file into Calendar crashes it.
If you have any ideas how I can fix Oracle Calendar's ics files to import
correctly (I'm thinking about a sed or perl line), please tell me. This bug is
preventing me from using Calendar which loses a lot of the N900's usefulness
Thanks for reporting this.
I can confirm that 2.2009.51-1 crashes the Calendar.
Running the internal non-public version 2010.06-13 I could successfully import
this file. It is one event, saying "Urlaub" for 23/12/2009 from 07.00-19.30
plus "Complex repeat. Unable to edit".
Hence this has been fixed in the meantime internally.
A future public update will include the fix. (This is not always already the
next public update.)
To answer popular followup questions:
* Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance.
* There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions.
A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
