I've just set up PHP iCalendar 2.31 (latest release) in a different
directory (http://linuxmafia.com/cal), and there are a couple of

1.  It's ridiculously slow.  As a page load on my local LAN,
http://linuxmafia.com/cal/month.php?cal=bale takes four seconds, whereas 
http://linuxmafia.com/calendar/month.php?cal=bale (v. 0.9.4 beta) is a
much more reasonable fraction of a second.

2.  http://linuxmafia.com/cal/ somehow misparses and garbles its display
of the contents of the bale.ics data file's SUMMARY field, making a mess
of each BALE event.
