<snipped script>

Thanks Paul,

this script is exactly what I wanted. Only one problem: It freezes on
dates containing non-ASCII characters, especially "ß". Any idea how I
could solve this?
Furthermore, .ics from evolution is not equal to .ics from korganizer.
If I use the evolution Calendar.ics file, all dates are timed 5 pm - 5
pm, while after importing them to korganizer/export them as .ics again,
it works (apart from the "ß" problem). Strange.

However, on the Evolution mailing list I was told that this feature is
planned for Evolution 2.0, so let's hope this will be finished soon.

Thanks again, 
joerg
