The main problem is that a remote Calendar changes to read only while editing a calendar event causing the user to lose the information that was just typed in.  Instead of the current error message that says something similar to "sorry, couldn't save your information" and then closing the event dialog, it would be beneficial if it could 

a) give the user the option to copy the text into another application.  "Sorry, couldn't save at this time are you sure you want to close this calendar event as all changes will be lost?".  At this point the user would have the opportunity to copy the information elsewhere. 

or 

b) save it into another calendar

c) auto save into the local calendar

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create event in remote calendar (dav ics file)
2. Type in all the event details 
3. Click Save
4. Remote save error (does not happen most of the time)


Actual Results:  
Calendar becomes read-only and event dialog closes losing information typed in

Expected Results:  
On save error, calendar becomes read-only but dialog doesn't close
Some options are presented on what to do now that the remote calendar is locked
   a) change calendar to save into
   b) save information elsewhere
