that's an interesting perspective that hadn't crossed my mind at all.

After some testing (it took me a while to get back to it - sorry for the
delay), it certainly looks like the bug is somewhere other than
org-export-icalendar, but I'm not sure that debian site-lisp is to blame
in this case (although I may very well be missing something). I
originally tried this on GNU Emacs, which I had gotten from
CVS and built myself. I don't think I use any of Ubuntu's emacs setup at
all. I also tried it on emacs (also obtained from CVS) and
starting it from the build directory with -Q, using whatever version of
org-mode is distributed with that version: I get the error there as
well. So it seems to me that the bug is somewhere fairly deep in emacs
itself (btw, I sent a bug report off to the emacs maintainers - we'll
see what they say). I also tried on an ancient RHEL4.1(?)  system with
the stock emacs 21 version that was packaged with it: I had to do some
work to get org-mode installed there, but I could not then reproduce the
