User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009090217 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.14
Build Identifier: Lightning version 1.0pre Build ID: 20091029040828, GData v0.6pre (latest nightly build)

After creating an event in the google calendar using lightning, if I go back to edit the event's reminders, they are all cleared and set to "no reminder," and cannot be saved to anything else without deleting and recreating the event.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new event in a google calendar
2. Save
3. Edit event and make a change to reminder
4. Save and close, event reminders disappear
5. Re-edit event, reminders = "no reminders"
6. Set a reminder, save and close.
7. Reminders are still set to "no reminders"
Actual Results:  
Reminders are permanently set to "no reminders" on event, unless it is deleted and recreated.

Expected Results:  
It should have set the specified reminders.

This is only a problem with the google calendar. It is not present while using a local calendar. I update thunderbird, lightning, GData to nightly builds daily.

Here are the debug messages which appears upon editing the event and changing the alert type (in "First > Last Sort Order):

I have noticed that the bug is prevalent with any editing of a calendar event, not just alert editing.

I think this is the same as 474983
bug 474983 is rather related to CalDAV. Are you using the experimental cache, if so see bug 477287.

I should definitely look into Google Calendar and alarms, seems like there are a lot of issues.
I've tested this issue with the latest versions and it now works for me. Please reopen if you still experience the issue.

The issue appears to have resolved itself after I disabled the experiemental cache. I had enabled the cache to work around the issue of alarms recurring at reload.
