WindowsXP SP1 with all fixes Sunbird 0.2a Firefox 1.0PR Calendar 2004110411-cal Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a standard ics 2. Edit the SUBJECT line to include a comma. Ex. SUBJECT :This is my, life today 3.Run import of ics file Actual Results: This specific event's subject will be: This is my Expected Results: This is my, life today I have verified that the same truncation happens in SunBird 0.2a as well, yet phpiCalander works fine as well Outlook.
Thanks for the report. I believe Calendar always escapes a comma in text values with a backslash. Whatever is producing the ics file with an unescaped comma in the title is not conforming to the specification, RFC2445. Text values with comma must place a backslash before a comma or semicolon. Comma is used as a separator for multiple values in text fields. See RFC2445 sec4.3.11 ... A COMMA character in a "TEXT" property value MUST be escaped with a BACKSLASH character (US-ASCII decimal 92). A SEMICOLON character in a "TEXT" property value MUST be escaped with a BACKSLASH character (US-ASCII decimal 92). ... So I suggest resolving this bug as invalid.
As you state I would also say Calendar should follow the specification and not ignore the rules as some major vendors do. I will notify the programmer of the issue found when they generate an .ics file.

Note that iCalendar 2.0 (RFC2245) is similar to vCalendar 1.0 (Versit consortium). If it is a vcs file, and has version 1.0, then it is a vCalendar 1.0 file and the comma need not be escaped. I don't think calendar/sunbird currently supports import of vcs differently than ics so that might be the bug. Does your file say VERSION:1.0 or VERSION:2.0 ?
