Thank you for the report. I’ve noticed this bug last May or June. I’ve a fix for it, but in a branch with some other changes. I’ll see if it’s necessary to get just the fix in before publication of the next version.

@flypig and @pvuorela, for information, this is commit c2d9ef02f2cf4e43db510a2f26a58ca107c6432b in jolla-calendar repo.
