The server does not have limits on PROPFINDs, but does on some other 
requests, but iCal is typically aware of those and knows how to query in 
smaller batches.

What does the server's access.log and error.log look like for this problem? 
Also, what are the timestamps on iCal's log entries? In particular, it 
could be that iCal is timing out waiting on the server (i.e. a performance 
issue rather than a limit).
