I am having this same issue. I have found that if you open the new event after creating, it will not revert its name back to "new event." If anyone has a permanent fix rather than this work around, it would be greatly appreciated.

This is happening to me to! I now have several "new events" on my calendar that I have no idea what events/meetings they really are!

Same! My calendar is connected to Exchange 2010. Is this common among any of the other users?
This is extremely frustrating, especially when sending an appointment to a group of people and it goes out as "New Event"

I thought it was just me. After creating a new event on iCal on Lion at some point within minutes it changes the title back to New Event. I have to remember to re-visit my entry about 10-15 minutes after creating it to set the title a second time

I have the same problem (2.a.): iCal 5.0.1 (in Lion) freezes once in a while when I'm about the create new events. Any idea - anyone?

Same thing here, with both iCloud and Exchange calendar. Very frustrating and embarasing!

same issue here. Using Lion. iCal is synching using Exchange (Microsoft online version) and keeps reverting title of new entries back to "new event"

Same Issue (On OS X Lion, appeared after moving from MobileMe to iCloud).
I noticed that my console's syetm log keeps on signaling this error :
2011/11/28 6:24:15.354 PM iCal: -[CalManagedExchangePrincipal setPrimitiveOverrideBaseURL:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7fef035d6c00
I'm hoping this can help someone find a work around or reason for the title resets.
Right now I am going crazy with this bug. It really hinders my ability to manage my time. I woul dhate to have to switch to some 3rd party calendar that's not as well integrated with therest of my Mac.

Have the same issue, anyone reported this to Apple?

Apple Support helped reset the system files related to this issue, to verify that no duplicates or errors existed. Support advised that if the problem persisted, then it was likely an issue of iCal interacting with the exchange server. My problem persisted. I connected with my exchange administrator and after a bit of analysis and research by admin, they changed an exchange server setting. Problem appears to have been resolved. Do not know the setting change made by exchange admin.

If you can get what they changed in the exchange server this could be the key to solving this for everybody. Can you please check??
Kind Regards, Rickard.

Same problem (events reverting to "New Event") as everyone here. The following workaround seems to help:
- select the time of the event in the calendar (it still shows it as New Event)
- press Command-R (this forces iCal sync to the server - which is the operation where the event name is lost)
- then type the name of the event and other details
- (if you are paranoid, do Command-R again)

Wow. I thought I was losing my mind. I've had so many appointments showing up as "New Event", tt's a miracle that I haven't lost my job yet. I'm glad to know that it's not my fault, but that doesn't help much when I rely on my calendar so much.
Thanks for the workaround ferdu.
Does anyone know if Apple is addressing this? Does anyone know if there is some way (e.g., removing iCloud calendars and syncing) to make this stop?
