I think this bug depends on bug 204445

WFM with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; de-AT; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507
(ZIP-File-version from and Mozilla Calendar 2003050815-cal 

I can confirm the problem with
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; En-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507 ,
Installer-EXE-File , with unknown calendar-version (can not start installed
calendar in that version)

Problem happens if calendar is preselected in preferences and also if mozilla is
started witn ....\mozilla.exe -calendar

Reporter, could you try with the very latest calendar-version?

Problem occurs with latest (8 May) build. Did not test whether it is associated
with earlier builds as well.

Problem seems to have been fixed with latest Calendar release (Mozilla Calendar
2003061213-cal) with Moz 1.4 RC1 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1;
en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529).

I do not think that that problem is really fixed.
Today I saw the ugly red text on yellow ground again instead of a calendar.
I tried to install for actual 1.4 WIN98 german version from ZIP the recommended
calendar, but it seems installation failed with a.m.result.

So I Installed a new 1.4 (german) installer version from
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; de-AT; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624
and the recommended actual calendar from august, but again without success. I
get something similar to a calendar view to the screen, but nothing works.
