What's ITT?
In the GPE mailing list archives I find:


in which Andrew Hold describes a problem similar to mine.  The file .gpe/
calendar is still present, and the contents seem to be there when I look 
at the calendar using more (at least, the ASCII strings I see look like 
strings that could be in the database..

I suppose next I should follow his example and use select * on it in 
sqlite (providing I can find out how to do this).  He says 
   gpe-calendar -e /dev/tty
also shows his entries.
