  As noted above, Google Calendar is also a work in progress (it's 
listed a 'beat' on the GCal home page last I checked).  The private G 
cals seem to work fine in my experience, but the 'public G calendar' of 
my son's youth soccer team, hosted at my google site, has undergone 
several "burps" development in the past couple weeks, which do indeed 
mess up Thunderbird's Lightning (calendar) extension and it's plug in.  
During these 'burps', you can't connect to them within Google or via 
outside programs/applets.  Then, a couple hours or day later, everything 
returns to 'normal'.  I suspect G Cal is battling with some sort of 
security issue.

  It's likely that the other G PIMs are undergoing similar development 
issues.  For the most part, it would seem calendars are less critical 
(aka less liability issues) than personal contact info, hence that may 
explain why GCal may be leading the way in G PIM development.   Once 
these issues are dealt with for GCal, the other G PIMs are likely to get 
finished up quickly.  Probably in the todo > contacts order of 
things...    Just a guess...
