I think export / import would work ...

... and I would have done so if I ever managed to get a working icaldir 
resource with my current version. As said, in my installation it does neither 
create the target directory after setting the resource up, nor is ever 
something written to disk, if I create new dates or tasks. Anything stays in 
the akonadi cache (i.e. the DB) until the next flush of the cache :-/

At least the ical resource works now. Having one big file is better than 
nothing persistent.

It's just an observation and together with the update is too much coincidence 
for this bad behavior.
