Hi Chris,
thank you once again. Please help me think further, what the root cause
could be.

The events are stored in the same "Personal" calendar. I looked yesterday in
the flags as you suggested below, but flags are set on the notebook and I
have only one notebook. On the items/events in the notebook I do not see
any flags or something suggesting read only. I also compared two records
from the msync db and they look the same except the UUID.

I looked in 

and I see many fields/properties are defaulted as read only in
NemoCalendarEvent and NemoCalendarEventModification.

It could be that over the years something changed and now the code is
creating the records in the db with some RO defaults.

I am not sure if I can just change there or what exactly is to be changed. I
will try to find some description of the model, if you have ideas and/or
links please let me know.

thanks in advance
