Addtionnaly, "Ubuntu 12" choice doesn't exist in your bugzilla...

Best Regards

Thanks for the feedback, the devs are checking the issue...

Also, added "Ubuntu 12 - 64 bit" to the "Platform" drop-down menu.

Hello Nicolas!

Our devs report that this is a Zimbra issue caused by an error in the RedoLog's parsing of a calendar item's metadata. Because of this, the Real Time Scanner is not able to save the item, but such item will be backupped during the next Smartscan/Fullscan.

A quick look at Zimbra's source code in Perforce shows that the bug has been fixed, so I think that the fix will be included in the next Zimbra release (obviously I can't guarantee on this).

Have a nice day,
the ZeXtras Team
