from what I figured out, the freebusyurls file is only created when adding 
a new contact in Kontact with an email address. Only running Kontact, 
should not create this file. Can you confirm that? Otherwise you may add 
information to the bug report or just report that you experience this 
problem as well, anyway. (Although I don't know whether this problem is 
still present in newer KDE versions or whether it's Debian specific...)
The presence of the freebusyurls file keeps KOrganizer from opening the 
calendar resources. So, at least no data is lost.
As a workaround you can use the address book instead of Kontact.

Do you use Kontact or the "stand-alone" address book? Also it may be 
relevant which resources you set up, see System Settings->Personal 
Information (as I translated this literally from my native language, the 
exact term may differ).
