    Any help will be welcomed.

    I have tested the library with multiple calendars, using the unmodified sample app provided by Edward and a modified version of the app to create events without reminders in multiple calendars.

    I have found a curious but serious problem. I hope someone else has also found the problem and has a solution. At least, I hope that someone tries to duplicate error I am describing and confirms my findings.

    1. I am able to create events in multiple calendars.
    2. I specify a location (as the unmodified sample app does).
    3. I check the event in the Google Calendar and the event with the location is there.
    4. After a few moments , the location is erased from the event in the calendar. I am not sure what the trigger is.

    If I edit the event in the calendar and save it, the location is preserved in the event.
    If I create an event in the calendar manually, the location is preserved in the event.

    The question is:
    Why is the location erased (4 above)?
    The second question is:
    Can anyone duplicate this?
    The third question is:
    What can I do to prevent it from happening?
    (I even tried to create an event and update it with the same location, but to no avail).

    Thank you in advance for your replies.
