User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.11) Gecko/2009060310 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.11
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 2.0.0.22 (20090608), Lightning 0.9, Provider for Google Data 0.5.1

I wanted to copy an existing event to tomorrow. It so happened that it was a weekly event.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a recurring event.
2. Select Copy from right button menu.
3. Position cursor elsewhere and select Paste from right button menu.
4. Error window pops up and the detail is MODIFICATION_ERROR.
5. Google calendar becomes read-only and has to be reset to read-write from Properties.

Actual Results:  
Paste fails and Google calendar becomes read-only and has to be reset to read-write from Properties.

Expected Results:  
Paste should warn about copying a recurring event and prompt user for available choices (turn into single event, create a recurring event with appropriate modifications, etc), or just silently turn it into a single event and user can modify it afterwards.
Does the issue still exists if testing with a recent 1.0pre nightly test build that contains e.g. the fixes from Bug 345607?

I fetched the latest Sunbird 1.0pre and tried to install the gdata-provider addon but it said that 0.5.1 is incompatible with 1.0pre. Where can I download a more recent version of gdata-provider?
The gdata-provider test builds can be found next to Lightning at <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/nightly/latest-comm-1.9.1/>.

Sunbird window dump

Shows interesting buggy behaviour in 1.0pre.

Well, well, well, I installed Sunbird 1.0pre and a compatible gdata-provider.xpi and the new bug behaviour is most entertaining.

As you can see from the screenshot, when I tried to copy the event "Timesheet" from Monday and paste into Tuesday, I got a null event on Tuesday with a duration of 24 hours from the same time of day as on Monday (not the time at which I tried to paste the event).

I also stumbled in this one. I can confirm this behavior with
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.4pre) Gecko/20090917 Lightning/1.0pre (BuildID=20090922033943), Shredder/3.0pre, latest gdata-provider.

No errors in console.

From an event like this (repeat weekly):

the event copied and pasted the day after becomes:

There has been a major rewrite of the Provider for Google Calendar between version 0.32 and 1.0. A vast number of bugs have been fixed during this rewrite, therefore I am closing lots of old bugs that I think might either be fixed or no longer apply to the latest version.

Please read the updated FAQ [1] for details on known issues. If you can reproduce your issue with the latest version of the Provider for Google Calendar and you can't find an existing bug that handles your case, please reopen this issue.

Thank you for your understanding.
