We currently don't support to properly render tasks in the imip bar. This would require more strings. We should allow sending task invitations until that is fixed, too.

Checked in the patch on HEAD and MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH.

This is bug is of course not fixed, but the scenario doesn't run into unhandled exceptions. We currently don't support task invitations (relnote added).

I'd suggest the following for the "All Systems" section:
"Lightning cannot send our task invitations and you cannot accept or decline task invitations from within your e-mail inbox (bug 445982).".
