Not really, and I'd rather like to get rid of the duration completely, 
where possible. It's unreliable due to DST changes and leap years.

Could we do something about this by storing the event's duration in 
the database, and using that to modify the time window we're looking 
at? I.e., event_start plus event_duration, or event_end minute 
event_duration?

I'm going to stall this for now. Finding recurring events that span 
more than one day is just a hard problem, but hopefully not one that's 
going to bite many users.

The first part is fixed. I don't have any bright ideas about the other 
problem though.

For some cases, taking the non-recur code from Kronolith::_getEvents() 
and applying it to recurring events as well should fix this. However, 
that's not going to catch cases where an event spans 2 days and you 
view only the 2nd day - recurrence calculation is based on day, so we 
simply wouldn't find the event in order to check it. And we'd 
theoretically need to look back before any given day however many days 
you can make an event span - which currently isn't limited.



Would missing those events be acceptable? Anyone have a more clever idea?

When adding an event that has different start and end dates and that 
also has a recurrance, only the first day is shown in day/week/month 
view.



If no recurrance is set, the event shows on all days it occupies.
