Subird 1.9.1.3567: BYSETPOS is still not working :-(

with todays (2009-10-07) nightlybuild "sunbird-1.0pre.en-US.win32.installer.exe" dated on
"October 7th 2009" BYSETPOS is still not working :-(

my current workaround:

after exporting from msoutlook2007

i have to do replacements in the ics file like
replace "BYDAY=TH;BYSETPOS=2" with "BYDAY=2TH"
replace "BYDAY=MO;BYSETPOS=-1" with "BYDAY=-1MO"

after that the recurrences are fine with sunbird.

msoutlook2007 can interpret this format, too.
unfortunately msoutlook2007 converts them back to BYSETPOS :-(
