Attached patch sunbird patchSplinter Review
Deletes the property if there isn't any value specified.  The idl states that this is acceptable to do, even if the property wasn't set before, and testing confirms this.

calendar-event-dialog.js does this in a much nicer way, with helper functions, etc.  We really do need to look into moving to that for Sunbird.

The lightning manifestation of this problem is the result of a failure to add an observer to the composite.  The fix for this is included in the new-views patch, and hence will not be included here.

sunbird patch checked in.  Adding dependency on the new-views, since that ought to fix things in lightning.

Changing resolution to FIXED as it now also works with Lightning.
Tested successfully in Thunderbird 1.6a1 + Lightning (20060108).
