I'll second what Georg wrote.

I do remember testing the de-facto-reference clients against a number
of recurring events, including daylight saving issues and it behaved rather 
well. I am just trying to read up on the discussion and I have managed to 
read all emails now. Next would be to think some more and try a few thing.
Right now I do have the time and I might lack it until Friday or next Monday,
so here is something premature: I believe the issues have not been properly 
understood. We do have a number of different issues, which let to a few 
exchanges that did not match each other.
