Even my critical bug on Bugzilla has gone totally without response.
This is not instilling confidence in the product, the team, etc.

No, it wouldn't be would it ... But fwiw, your bug is one of 10's of
hundreds, so it isn't unusual there is no response to a bug in only a
week - bugs are prioritised and it takes a long time to fix even simple
ones.  It is physically impossible to attend to all bugs with immediacy.

I understand completely, and I'm sorry for the desperate nature of my
post.  I had been trying to be patient, but I'm working under massive
deadlines and I can only go without a calendar for so long.  I really
appreciate you all taking the time to help me/us.

Anyway, there will be additional state stored in gconf, you may be able
to just delete stuff there.  If you remove the files themselves, make
sure you run gconftool-2 --shutdown first.  Note that it stores the list
of all calendars/addressbooks and all mail accounts there too, so you
probably don't want to just delete everything (then again mayube you do
want to delete all of the calendar/addressbook stuff, if you just
shutdown/mv it somewhere else, you can always restore it afterwards).

I had deleted the "calendar" and "tasks" directories before with no
results.  However, I didn't know to stop gconfd with that command first.
Thanks for this gem, as this time my problem was instantly resolved!

Again, thanks for the help.  I now have a properly working calendar and
tasks subsystem again.  I'll go close the bug now.
