If I display a calendar file in mozilla that ical and phpicalendar display
identically, I get a lot of weird events: some are duplicated on the same day,
others are on different days than on iCal. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Display an ICS file in both iCal and mozilla calendar
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
I see incorrect schedule information. 

Expected Results:  
It should display the same events as iCal and phpicalendar.

How mozilla displays this data

This a screen grab of mozilla calendar displaying an ICS file. See also iCal's
attempt at it.

I'm not entirely sure how all the components of calendar work, but if it helps,
I do know that the phpicalendar parser displays the same file just as iCal does.
I dunno if this means the misfeature is in libical or not. If you need a screen
grab of that, too, i can provide it. 

Summary: iCal and mozilla -calendar disagree on how to display the same calendar file. → iCal and mozilla -calendar disagree on how to display the same calendar file.

The first problem to be solved is to support COUNT in recurrence rules in
Mozilla Calendar. This will be done when bug 167553 is fixed.

The backend now supports COUNT in its recurrence rules. This will fix the display.
Fixed in CVS
Thanks for the detailed bug report.

Mass move of libxpical bugs to the Internal Components, per ctalbert.
Component: libxpical → Internal Components
The bugspam monkeys have been set free and are feeding on Calendar :: Internal Components. Be afraid for your sanity!
