I just made a test on the Google calendar application and they proceed as phpgroupware is proceeding : in case of a change in the recurring event, all removed events are put back in the calendar. So it could look like "not a bug but a feature" ...

I won't commit it before a serious discussion takes place on this.

Hi Adam,

Well, from what I read in the code, yes, recur_exception field is not updated ...

I agree that in some cases, people want the exceptions to be kept as is, even if the hours are changed, but if days are changed what should we do ?

Anyway, this is a rough first try to fix this issue. Please test it on your local installation and tell me if :
 - nothing else is broken in your day to day use of calendar,
 - if the patch is working for you.

I take a really simplistic approach, I hope this is the good one :).

If some other dev can take a look at it and comment :).

The exception dates for a recurring event are not updated when an event is changed.
Steps to reproduce:
 - Create an even that repeats weekly, say every Monday at 9am.
 - Remove one instance of the event in the future.
 - Change the time of the series to 9:30am
 - The removed instance now displays on the calendar.

I have looked into it and it seems that the unix time stamps listed in the recur_exception field of the phpgw_cal_repeats table are not changed when the event is edited.
