I cannot reproduce this.

Which storage do you use?

What is your Linux distribution?

I don't understand what you mean by 'which storage.' Everything, both software and data, is on a new IDE hard disk that was installed this past November.

The system it is running on is:
        Ubuntu 11.10,
        Thunderbird 8.0, and
        Lightning 1.0.

With storage I meant which backend you use. Lightning supports WebDAV, CalDAV and Local Storage. When you create a calendar in the wizard you choose where it will be stored.

From the above I assume you are using the "Local Storage" provider/backend.

I am on Ubuntu 11.10, Firefox 9.0.1 and Lightning 1.1.1 for me this works on CalDAV and Local Storage.

Can anybody else reproduce? 

Udvarias, could you try with a clean Thunderbird profile? i.e. a new user account?

Deleted an empty account I created for test purposes and recreated it.

Then repeated the steps delineated in the bug report with the same result.
