Can you provide an example event that this fails for? All monthly  
recurring events I have tested are working fine for me.

Can you provide an example where this calculation fails? We have been  
using this calculation in our recurrence code for ages.

This type of recurrence is not supported AFAIK by AS 2.5.  Using a  
real exchange 2003 server and outlook I cannot create this type of  
recurrence series.  If you have a working patch that this works for,  
along with a test event to prove it, I can look into adding.

AFAIK, this type is for the same _date_, not the dayofyear.

Unfortunately, not a single soource. You need to read the  
footnotes/changes section. There are also some postings linked to in  
the wiki that give some overviews of the different versions, but not  
that detailed. Also, when in doubt, I just sniff the traffic of a real  
exchange 2003 server.
