Exhange 2010 Invite Public Folder to Private Calendar meeting

Have set up a test mail-enabled PF with author permissions for the mail account used to crrate the private calendar meeting request. The configuration seems OK as this eventually works - the private calendar meeting appears in the PF calendar, but ONLY if the tick box for the PF calendar in Outlook favorites is removed and re-added (guess this refreshes the Outlook PF view) - only then does the meeting appear in the PF calendar, or if OL client is closed/reopened.  I have increased ther logging for IS-Public, but it looks like the problem is not here, or the process uses a different mechanism. If I do the reverse 0 create PF entry and invite private calendar it appears instantaneously. From the above, it can be deduced that the PF calendar is correctly mail-enabled, can be e-mailed, has correct permissions.
It looks like the problem is that the OL client isNOT auto-refreshing the PFs view ??

Anyone had/resolved this issue and/or can explain the method this process uses to update the PF calendar with the new e-mailed meeting request, and/or that used to then update the OL client PF view to display this request ?

In the client, under favorites, the two calendars are side0by side when the tick boxes are checked for both (one in personal calendars, the other in "other peoples' calendars".

Thanks

I think I have figured out what is going on but just need to know if I am right. I am doing some more testing in next few days to confirm my theory but may revisit this if still getting nowhere !!

This can be abandoned.
Process works as follows :-
OL2007 client makes calendar entry in own calendar, and "invites" other PF calendar. Client searches for HomeMDB to find its PF Database. Sends message to database with calendar entry. Database responds with a confirmation of entry, BUT that the replicas of this PF calendar have not been updated (this can be confirmed by focusing on the view of the PF calendar in the OL client - a "ghost" entry appears to confirm the entry.
Once the replicas have been successfully updated, PF database informs Calendar Assistant on the client that all replicas are now available and updated. The "Ghost" entry is now copied to create a "firm" entry in the calendar.
The reason therefore the entry does not appear (except in "Ghost" format) is that the replicas have not been updated. This can be confirmed by removal of all replicas except for the dafailt PF database for the mailboxdatabase housing the client's mailbox - the entry will be copied immediately creating the "firm" entry without delay.
I could find no workround - replication happens when it is defined as efficient for the PF database to send a replication message to another PF holding a replica.
