Perhaps there's a calendar file in your ~/.mozilla/firefox/something directory that contains the item. It might be an ICS or XML file that you can hand edit.

As for reporting bugs you may be able to find a bugzilla for lightening. Search to see if it's an existing bug before reporting it. You may be able to subscribe to the bug and see updates as work on it progresses.
