Ok, I managed to fix what was "broken" in the calendar that lernid parses. Still the bug should be fixed in python-vobject. I followed up on the upstream bug.

If there's a good way (I didn't find any) to print out a message in lernid if the parsing fails and why, that'd be nice. If not possible, feel free to close the lernid portions of the bug.

This should be fixed in Ubuntu Oneiric, as it's the same version as in Debian.

This bug was fixed in the package lernid -

lernid ( oneiric; urgency=low

  * Oneiric release. (LP: #844923)
  * Merge changes to convert from python-central to dh_python2

lernid ( natty; urgency=low

  * Ready for release

lernid ( natty; urgency=low

  * Make schedule a bit easier to read by making font used for instructors one size smaller

lernid (0.8.2) natty; urgency=low

  * Add 'avoid-desktopcouch' debugging option.

  * Remove #ubuntu-classroom-es. Assign correct calendar to #ubuntu-charlas

  * Document the following merges in debian/changelog:

  * Add instructor names to schedule.

  * Add option -d (--debug) for message received and members changed events as
      well as for all other verbose messages. Makes --verbose less verbose.
      Fixes LP: #816080.

  * Couch desktopcouch in try: clause; ignore desktopcouch database if
      unavailable. Fixes LP: #795138 and LP: #516619 by this circumvention.

  * Use a config file as backup for desktopcouch. Window sizes and pane settings
      will not be restored. The config file is recreated each time lernid
      is run, whether or not desktopcouch is available.

  * Get the events from /etc/lernid-classrooms.d/* rather than from the
      Internet. Remove all but the last weeks events and scroll down
      to the current time. LP: #528870.

  * Add /etc/lernid-classrooms.d/ubuntu-classroom and

  * Add ubuntu-charlas chatroom choice. These implement the
      lernid-config-file-improvements blueprint
      basic requirements. Also fix LP: #533279 and LP: #793033.

  * Add button to open the slide file in the user's (external) browser.
      Add tooltip text to slide window giving the slide url.
      Resolves LP: #830856 and LP: #530817.

  * Add new [slidefile url] and [slidefile url 3] instructor commands to
      load a slide file during a session, and to load the slide file and then
      switch to the page.

  * Load slide file asynchronously using gio (rather than using threads).
      Again fixes LP: #530119. Fixes LP: #795347. Report downloading progress.
      Restablishes these two functions originally created by Peeyoosh

  * Remove bold effect from the room names in the classroom and chatroom label.
      Include the '#' in the name, if someone had abbreviated it.
      Fixes LP: #806797.

  * Add a ZERO WIDTH SPACE and SIX-PER-EM SPACE following "QUESTION: " to help
      classbot pick out questions without regard to the word "QUESTION" as its
      language might not match the one lernid is using. Addresses LP: 808570.

  * Look for classbot messages in a case-insensitive manner. Mark its messages
      by making them italic. Fixes LP: #794126

  * Retrieve the value of "QUESTION:" from the session or the event. Look first
      for a question_token value in the session, then for a locale for the
      session, then for a question_token value for the event, then for a locale
      value for the event.

  * If locale is used and begins with es, translate QUESTION to spanish, otherwise
      leave as english.

  * Added a server variable to e...
