UTF-8 encoding lost during ics roundtrip resulting in calendar read error (CAL
_UTF8 _DECODING _FAILED)
When reading and writing a calendar file character information seems to be lost. Lightning fails to read the calendar file upon next startup. STR: 1. Set calendar.icaljs to true, restart Thunderbird 2. Use menu File > Open > Calendar File to subscribe to a local ics calendar file 3. Open the event that contains some special characters and just save it 4. Restart Thunderbird Error: Lightning fails to load the calendar file it has created in step 3. Warning: There has been an error reading data for calendar: test. Error code: CAL_UTF8_DECODING_FAILED. Description: An error occured while decoding an iCalendar (ics) file as UTF-8. Check that the file, including symbols and accented letters, is encoded using the UTF-8 character encoding.
Looks like JS-only doesn't like using the string-input-stream. I've switched to an unicodeconverter stream, which seems to do the trick.
