In that case: What's the "Save" function supposed to do that's in the
pop-up dialog in korganizer (the one you get when you right-click on the

Ok. I didn't have much time on my hands, so I just ran a few quick
tests. I had one SuSE 9.3 box with an existing user (upgrade from SuSE
9.2, but that user has an NFS mounted $HOME and is used under other
Linux distros as well) and one with a fresh user. With the existing
user, it worked right away. With the fresh user I saw the same problem
as described before - I had to run kmail/korganizer side by side once.
What I'd like to do at some point this week: Create another testuser,
make a backup of all relevant files (I presume they are all located in
$HOME/.kde - or is there anything else?), then perform that magic and do
a diff. Maybe that will give you some more info. Just let me know which
files are the most interesting.
