D'oh! The egg on my face is all mine ;-)

Thanks for the explanation. I will read up on that at some point.

Not only that, it appears. Now that I added default calendars everything is 
peachy! This is the logging I just got from logging in as a non-admin user:

2006/09/05 22:00 CEST [HTTPChannel,0,] OPTIONS 
/calendars/users/a0620/ HTTP/1.1
2006/09/05 22:00 CEST [HTTPChannel,0,] 'Invalid privileges with 
no authentication details: <OPTIONS /calendars/users/a0620/ (1, 1)>'

2006/09/05 22:01 CEST [HTTPChannel,3,] PROPFIND 
/calendars/users/a0620/inbox/ HTTP/1.1

So all is well for now ... thanks for your help!
