In the Recurrence Rules, if you select "Repeat Every" then you are able to
select the radio buttons for how long the recurrence will run. If you select
"Number of times:" then it defaults to 0. By increasing the value to 1, you
would assume that this meant "Repeat Once the following day/week/month".
Increasing to 2 would be "repeat twice" or three total events.

However, 0 & 1 have the same functionality. So in my mind, the logic is broken.
Either the default value should be 1 (not 0) or selecting 1 should mean "Repeat
Once (Plus the original)"

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new event
2. Select the recurrence tab
3. Check Repeat Every
4. Select the "Number of times"
5. Increase the value to 1

Actual Results:  
Notice that the event doesn't get repeated? 

Expected Results:  
The "number of times" either needs to default to 1 (meaning total number of
times the event will occur) or needs to default to 0 with 1 adding an occurance
(meaning the total time the event will reoccur).

eventDialog.js, todoDialog.js patch recurCount: 0 if not selected, min 1 if selected


Design:  Minimum displayed value is 1.	If not selected, stored value is 0.  If
selected, minimum stored value is 1.  

(Another problem occurred if a non-zero value is entered but the radio button
was not selected: the value was stored, so when it was opened again the radio
became selected in addition to the originally selected radio button, so
multiple radio buttons were selected.  Fix explicitly stores 0 if not selected,
and never stores 0 if it is selected.)

patch details:

 loadCalendarEventDialog: setFieldValue repeat-numberOfTimes-text to at least 1

 onOKCommand:  if repeatNumberOfTimes-radio is selected store value at least 1
  if not selected, always set to 0.
  Also add declaration for var i used in loops (strict javascript warning)
