@Alan The prob appears because of a flaw in the logic of the workflow. The
basic sync works for pet testing. But in a real world calendar you'll get a lot
of invites form crazy software out there massacring the iCal format. 
And there sits the flaw. Instead of failure of this one entry, the entire
workflow of syn stops to work. The only option is to get into akonadicontrol,
go totally nerd under the hood, guess the ids in the totally user unfriendly
database setup, find the massacred ics entry, delete it and sync starts again.
It is very very hard to find the broken entry. And it only works until the next
time you import something. 
As this is deeply anchored in the logic of the workflow, I maintain that fixing
this issue needs A LOT of love and effort. And until KDE finds some sponsor to
do it, kontact is basically dead or reduced to hobby-use. Given that even
thunderbird has trouble to get sponsors & money, my hope is low.
