Hmm caldavd was a member of ssl-cert so i dont think thats it.
I've changed all the permissions to group caldavd and running caldavd -X  
gives me errors: first line of the traceback is:
twistedcaldav.config.ConfigurationError: Can't create TwistdSlaveProcess  
without a TCP Port

Also originally I did just have digest authentication enabled, setting  
basic to false still gives me this error:
2009-05-06 15:47:22-0400 [-] [caldav-8008]  [HTTPChannel,0,]  
OPTIONS /calendars/ HTTP/1.1
2009-05-06 15:47:22-0400 [-] [caldav-8008]  [HTTPChannel,0,]  
'Authentication failed: nonce-count is not a valid hex string: None'

I'm not finding this one a friendly package
