Well, I thought, start a new calendar. Maybe that will help. So I'm
going through the new calendar routine and get to the point of telling
it to use an existing calendar. Fine. I select the calendar.ics again.
But now I see a check-box: "Allow Evolution to update the file."

What does this do? There's nothing in the help files that explains this

I believe that indicates whether Evolution should treat the file as a
read-only, untouchable data source, or whether it's permissible to
overwrite the file with modifications (new events, etc.).

That makes sense. Just a bit confusing because I would have thought
modifying would just be the default, since presumably that's the normal
reason for creating a new calendar.

Anyway. I created the new calendar and chose the calendar.ics to install
in it. I then get a message at the bottom saying "opening the calendar."
But when the message goes away there's nothing in the calendar. When I
try to create a sample event in that calendar, the app stops responding
and I have to shut down Evo.

It seems that changing the preference settings for the workweek somehow
corrupted my .ics file. That's buggy.

Hopefully when I get home my backup can be used. Should I copy it
to ..../.local/share/evolution/calendar/system, or have Evolution import
it from its location on the backup medium?

Well it finally loaded. Don't know why it took so long--at least 4-5
minutes, if not longer. I gave up and came back later and saw that it
had loaded. The .ics is about 9MB. Is that too big for Evolution?
