Hi Andy,

I presume then that you are in fact using the XML File Directory 
Service.  Check in your caldavd-dev.plist for the following code:

 <!--  XML File Directory Service -->


Note the <string> tag under <key>xmlFile</key> and ensure that it is 
pointing to accounts.xml and not accounts-test.xml as it does by default.
