Hi Ivars,

I am wondering if you had any success with this in the end?  I have been 
playing with this plug in for a day or so now and also not having any 
luck.  I haven't found a problem with expand_user function, but I worked 
around insert_default_calendar by commenting the call to the function, 
since I want only caldav anyway.  I have been working my way through 
several patches in the kolab repository, and every time I do I get new 
problems and errors, but I don't know if that is fixing it or making it 

I have a copy of the myroundcube calendar/calendar_plus plugin, which I 
also tried to get working, but it seems to rely on the plugin system 
they were using, and I am not sufficiently skilled in programming to 
decipher its hiccup, and I don't want to try and transfer their whole 
plugin system to a new server.  The license on the software doesn't seem 
to prohibit me from changing the code, but it does prevent me from 
distributing it, so a dead end road anyway...

I had really hoped the roundcube_next project would solve this caldav 
issue, but can no longer afford to wait on this...

Now I cannot even repeat that with second installation. I get above error message on both GET and POST operations. I suspect it was a configuration thing so maybe that is all that's required to change. But I am not sure.
