[maemo-users] emptied calendar -- SOLVED

The problem turned out to be simple:

The upper right panel on the calendar lists a set of calendars that the 
calendar program can display.  Presumably, it merges them.  Each calendar 
has a check-box beside it (which I, as new used, thought was a mere 
decoration).  Somehow the (only) entry for my own calendar had become 
unchecked.  Once diagnosed, problem was easy to solve -- I just checked 
my calendar again.  Detailed discussion is available at

My original post follows below.
