Hehe, there needs to be one space before "De Coster" (or rather, there needs 
to be a space directly after the line break, so that it's a continued line 
continuing the DESCRIPTION property and not a new property line)...

But that's not the problem of you original report. That problem is that 
KOrganizer used to create ORGANIZER values of "MAILTO:" (i.e. no email 
address, when no owner existed in the original file. That problem should be 
fixed. One problem that remains, though, is what should happen if the owner 
only has a name (cn=... parameter), but no email? Currently, KOrganizer still 
generates an organizer entry like
ORGANIZER;CN="Reinhold Kainhofer":MAILTO:

RFC 2445 says that the value must be a valid URI, but how can one get a useful 
URI if you have only the name and nothing else...

So, I suppose that bug has already been fixed in korganizer recently. The 
border-case of a broken ics that already had a messed-up ORGANIZER value will 
still produce a broken ics, but that's expected...
