I investigated this a bit with a Nokia N97 and was able to replicate the
problem. Don't bother running further experiments, what I suggested with
UID/SEQUENCE doesn't work.

The problem is related to time zone information. I created a new bug for
it here: http://bugs.meego.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9600

Giancarlo, just to confirm that we are seeing the same issue, does
creating an event in the UTC time zone (can be selected in Evolution if
you enable viewing of the time zone in the event edit dialog) and later
updating it work for you? That worked for me. Please reply in the bug

But using UTC is a bad workaround, because recurring issues need time
zone information, so some more work is needed.
