The culprit is de-AT.jar/locale/de-AT/calendar/calendar.dtd:

You have to add 

<!ENTITY calendar.server.dialog.username.label "Benutzername">
<!ENTITY calendar.server.dialog.password.label "Passwort">



Reproducible: Always

1. Install German langpack
2.Visit icalshare.com
3. Click any webcal link
Actual Results:  
as described above

do I have to elaborate?

No, that is wrong. There are no username/password fields anymore in the server
dialog. Looks like you somehow have a old calendar + new translation.

Well, Debian's Mozilla 1.7.3 ships with version 2004040813-cal of Calendar. This
looks pretty old, indeed. 

However, the Debian package header says "Source: mozilla", meaning it has been
build from the same source package as mozilla-*-1.7.3. Therefore I assumed that
this version was included with the official source for Mozilla 1.7.3.

If I'm wrong, please let me know. I will probably file a bug against
mozilla-calendar in Debian then.

Well, my XPI packages always contain the most recent translation, and in this
this case that means you have the trunk calendar localization with a branch
calendar which gives you the problems, but it's suitable for most other people

This is an INVALID bug here, but you should file it with Debian, as you said.

Well, this IS a problem for me, as I've mostly taken over maintenance of
mozilla-locale-de-at from Florian Weps.

In Debian, mozilla-{browser,mailnews,calendar} are built from a single source
package. I.e. the mozilla-calendar package in debian will always be the one with
has been current at the time of the latest mozilla release. 

You say that your langpack versioned 1.7.3 does _not_ match mozilla-calendar
included in the mozilla 1.7.3 sources but contains the translations for a newer
release/snapshot instead? Did I get it right? 

If so, where can I turn to retrieve the matching translation for the older
version/the diffs?

I forgot to say: I'm not going to file a bug against mozilla-calendar in Debian.
The only solution Debian could offer would be to build mozilla without calendar
and build calendar snapshots separately. I don't think I this proposal would
gain any support.
