The debian maintainer (Rahul Amaram) did some work not too long ago packaging 3.2, so perhaps you should work with him.  I think he's on this list.  Due to that work, at least now Debian is on a version with an SQL-backed data store; 3.2 and 4.1 have similar enough structures that you shouldn't need to change much.  (2.4->3.2 was a much bigger jump.)

Can you attempt to reproduce this problem with trunk?  Trunk should not be packaged, but I vaguely recall seeing this bug and fixing it, although I can't find it in subversion history at the moment.

If it doesn't reproduce with trunk I will try to find and extract the fix for you.  If it *does* reproduce, that's odd, because I've at least run Calendar Server on Debian; it could be that I had a different version of Twisted installed, though.
