Well, some errors do not enter the debugger.  Set debug-ignored-errors
to nil for maximum debugging.  Furthermore, try it in Emacs with -q
and --no-site-file -- perhaps you have code on a hook that tries to
modify the calendar after display?

I run GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll
bars) of 2002-05-28 on confusibombus, just created a diary file, added
an entry, used (setq diary-display-hook '(fancy-diary-display)), used
m to update the calendar, saw the marked entry, pressed d on the day,
and got a fancy diary buffer with my test entry.  "It works for me."
