I confirmed that my synckolab settings were sane, and I also tried creating a new calendar and synching with that, but the results were the same.

the problem with the calendar sync is in synckolab.js around line 255. 
The code should be changed from the IF construct to simply:

   syncCalendar.init2(getContent, syncCalendar);
   window.setTimeout(getContent, SWITCH_TIME, syncCalendar);		

I've also come across another problem during the sync process. If an 
event has been updated on the server, the local modification can trigger 
an alarm. This will lead to an aborted sync process. I've fixed that 
already on my local copy of Synckolab. A patch will be sent to Niko.

A major problem is IMO that if by whatever reason all events on a server 
are considered new, it's a hard job to answer all the dialogs with Yes 
or No. I'd prefer to have additional choices to take all events from 
server or from local without further questions.
