Recurring event not displaying correctly

description

The Mini Calendar webpart for SP 2010 seems to have an issue with the reccuring events settings.
If you set an event on a single day and ask it to repeat that event annnually (or for anyother time frame), the event shows as a daily event for every day between the start and end date.
(egSet a birthday on 30 May 2011 and set this event to repeat yearly with no end date. The result is each and every day from start to end date (apparently until 2060) will show that event.
Several different underlying calendars have been used and the same behaviour appears to occurs in all instances
The event in the underlying Sharepoint 2010 default calendar shows the event correctly ( one day per year).
If the recurring event tick is removed the event defaults back to normal but the end date is set to 30 May 2060 and still shows the event on everyday until the correct the end date is entered and the single event then returns to a normal event.
 
Image attached shows the settings and the resultant calendar display.

Same Issue all repeating events display as single event from start date/time up to the end date/time of the recurrence; anyone have a solution?
