The calendar extension does nothing if one tries to launch it more than once unless Firefox is first restarted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the calendar extension for Firefox
2. Go to Tools--> Calendar
3. Close calendar
4. Go to Tools--> Calendar

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens- calendar does not launch the second time.

Expected Results:  
The calendar extension should have launched.

Calendar extension version .3a1+ (experimental nightly 2006-01-06)
Confirmed with Mozilla Calendar 2006010605-cal @ Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060108 Firefox/1.5.
No errors in js console.

It's very possible that if the line:

<script type="application/x-javascript" src="chrome://communicator/content/utilityOverlay.js"/>

is removed from calendar.xul , the problem won't occur.

This has been confirmed. So we need something like a good #ifdef around that line.Though with dynamic overlays being possible now, the ideal solution would be  to dynamically load that overlay if it exists.
In current experimental builds (as of 2006-01-21) the line is commented out. This has caused goPreferences not to work in Seamonkey 1.0b which was a sacrifice worth making.
