Although I am not fully sure, I think it's enlightement getting in the
way. Enlightenment (and some other window managers) have an option which
(when turned on) will "smart place" a new window to wherever there is
room on the current desktop. It's probably turned on your machine and
hence enlightenment is overriding the location gnome is specifying.
Turn "smart placement" off and see if that helps.

Hmm, I don't know what the problem is, but have you tried using
Gnome Calender (app name is gnomecal, under the Applications Menu) instead
of "ical"? I found it to incorporate all the features of ical with the
bonus of gnome integration.
