Hi Lenny,

It's been driving me crazy but I finally fixed it! The only error I 
could see in the logs was an error with memcached not being able to log 
on as root. It looks like the memcache service gets called in 
twistedcaldav/cluster.py so I just added a line in on line 393 to force 
the service to start as root:

if config.Memcached["ServerEnabled"]:
    log.msg("Adding memcached service")

    memcachedArgv = [
        "-p", str(config.Memcached["Port"]),
        "-l", config.Memcached["BindAddress"],
        "-u", "root",

And bam, calendars galore for all.
