Due Date Resets After Browser Close
I have a list to remember my family's birthdays.
I made 40+ tasks labelled in the following way:
"BIRTHDAY REMINDER - Pete - 22nd october"
When I come to add the due date, i use the following formulae:
"every 365 days starting 22nd October @0900"
This logs fine at first.
On closing and re-opening the browser, it loses the due dates!
I use Chrome and have tested this on 2no. different machines.
I have cleared all the cache and re-tried and it still does this.

if you add a "starting" day to a due date, please always use this formula:
"starting 22. Oct 2012"
Either way, for these tasks, the formula you've used is not optimal just because of the 366-day year every 4 years. Instead, please use the following due date:
"every 22. Oct"
This will always schedule this task for October, 22nd regardless of the amount of days the year has. If you want to add a reminder to this task, simply right-click on it and add a reminder due "every 22. Oct @ 8:30am". Of course, you can also use "every 22. Oct @ 9am" in the task date which will create an automatic reminder through the channel selected as default in Preferences -> Reminders.
