When I open up Sunbird and it is busy loading my remote calendar, I want to add an event, publish it and close but sometimes it takes too long to load (like what happened to me today), I added an event and published and closed but Sunbird didn't finish loading my calendar.
Can't there be a warning message that pops up or something saying "Warning you are going to publish to a remote calendar that is busy loading?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let it load a remote calendar (should take longer than expected)
2. Add an event
3. Publish
4. Boom!
Actual Results:  
Only the new event shows in the remote calendar's file.

Expected Results:  
Either some kind of smart synchronization or at least a warning box saying that the remote calendar isn't done loading before publishing the calendar.

I only have the standard Sunbird stuff.

What kind of remote calendar do you use? CalDav? ICS? WCAP? Google?

Dandre, I know you reported this bug over a year ago, but did you use the 'Publish' option for one-time publish to a server, or did you mean the automatic publishing after adding an event?
