#475 Tilde character throws errors


If a tilde "~" character is in a calendar item title, davmail throws errors about not finding the calendar item and it does not display in Thunderbird. People at my work put tildes in a lot of calendar items, it's some kind of group learned behavior. So titles are like "Bob ~ WFH". Davmail pops up an error in the tray for each one of these.

At the time I am writing this, I know that there Davmail 4.1 and Thunderbird 16 are available, but I don't want to mess with a working calendar setup until I know that this tllde bug is fixed.

Snippets of things in the log that looked relevant to me. I can get more if needed.
