User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.8

Here's the deal.
My specs:
Windows 2000 SP4
AMD XP 2000
256 RAM
I Installed latest sunbird for windows (2004-08-18), fired it up, made a new
task for later on today. It just froze, started to eat up RAM, so I killed it
and re-opened. I still had the same window open as before I killed it (the one
containing the task I just created), so I sat and looked at it for a few
minutes. It ate up all the CPU and RAM until a message poped up saying some
script was using all my resoruces and the PC could crash, asking me if I wanted
to kill it. Said yes, and could keep on using everythin fine.
Hope I'ts clear!

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Sunbird
2. Create new task

did you leave the start date for the event empty?  check for a bad date value in
the .ics file
Please try to reproduce this bug using the latest Sunbird.

Downloaded the new version, open it up, and it just froze up and ate RAM.

Might be bug 257943 if your calendar contains a task that had no start date.

If so, you could edit the .ics file in a text editor and get rid of the
offending task.  The default .ics file is in the profile, which is under
c:/Documents and Settings/username/Application
Data/Mozilla/Sunbird/Profiles/???.default/Calendar/

(If that fails, you could work around it by deleting the sunbird profile
completely, so Sunbird will create a new empty profile when it starts.)
