Summary0005037: Using commas in invitation contact names cause to be badly escaped

Using commas in event invitation contact name like "Foo, Bar" <> cause, when the event is moved/rescheduled, to be escaped infinitely.

1: "Foo, Bar" <>
2: "Foo\, Bar" <>
3: "Foo\, Bar" <>
4: "Foo\\, Bar" <>

and so on... until the event is to big to be processed in calendar server.

on sogo: ERROR: Data too long for columnt 'c_participants' at row 1

This happens on Thunderbird 68 (both windows and linux) with Sogo Connector plugin 68.0.1 using a remote Caldav Calendar.

Steps To Reproduce

Create a new event in a remote CalDav Calendar and invite a user with a comma in the name like "Foo, Bar" <>

Move the event to another day and the invited user will have a backslash escaping the comma.

Moving again the event cause the backslash to increase in number.

TagsNo tags attached.

Which SOGo version are you using on the server side?

Then you should upgrade your server, as this is fixed.
