Now that I have upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion, every time I enter a New Event into iCal, it doesn't automatically save the event upon re-opening iCal. For example, I double click to create a new event and enter "Do payroll." iCal shows Do Payroll properly in the date until I close iCal. Upon opening it no longer says Do payroll but it is replaced with "New Event." Oddly enough, if I enter Do Payroll again, it will persist upon closing and re-opening the second time I enter it. It just never seems to save the event upon reopening until entered again the second time.
