Thanks, that seems to work.

No, it wasn't. When importing the file e_cal_add_timezone() is not
called (verified in a debugger), but ended up
in .evolution/calendar/local/*.ics anyway. That it doesn't show up in
the GUI properly must have been something different. I'll retest with
2.6.2 once I find the time to compile it.
