In my tests it's worse than that. There's another thread on this issue where one post mentions that if you create an item in Tbird, then do anything on it (move, change, whatever) in the Zimbra UI, you can no longer edit it in Tbird; any edits you do revert to the last version done on Zimbra when the calendar reloads. In my tests that includes accepting an appointment from another user.

I would love to see the folks at Mozilla and those at Zimbra get their heads together and tighten up this connection; it would make a killer app all the more killer. But we're clearly not there yet. . .
I'm also not sure whether these are bugs to file with Mozilla or Zimbra because I don't know enough of the guts to know whose problem it is. . .
