Select Calendar dialog is empty during export/import/publish.

Steps To Reproduce:
1. Start Sunbird with clean profile.
2. Create a second local calendar.
3. Select File -> Export Calendar, File -> Import or File -> Publish Calendar

Actual Results:
Select Calendar dialog is displayed but empty. No error messages in Console.

Expected Results:
Existing (and writable) calendars are displayed in the Select Calendar dialog.
Hmm, on TRUNK everything is OK:
    Works in Sunbird 0.6a1 (2007-11-16-06)

Regression range for MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH:
    Works in Sunbird 0.8pre (2007-10-27-05)
    Fails in Sunbird 0.8pre (2007-10-28-06)

Checkins during regression range on MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH:
The calendars are actually in the list but not displayed. If you click into the list field and use the keyboards up and down arrows keys to navigate the list the entries get visible.
I've confirmed this, the calendars are in the list, but are not viewable.  If you arrow up, they become visible.
Philipp, this seems to be caused by your patch from bug 390508. But the different behavior on Mozilla1.8 and Trunk is weird.

The behavior is kinda weird: If I have 2 local calendars the list is empty. But if I have 3 local calendars they are shown again (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20071127 Calendar/0.8pre)

I've confirmed Stefan's comments, a third entry makes the list visible again, intermittently.
This is indeed caused by the changes from Bug 390508 and the attempt to preselect the calendar in the list. If I remove the two lines at it works again. 

I played around with this and tried to find a solution for the problem but nothing really seemed to work. Either the entire list was invisible or the default entry was not selectable or too little entries were displayed or everything was ok - dependent on what calendar was selected in Sunbird.

My suggestion: Remove this two lines and restore the 0.7 behavior to fix it.

Attached patch fixSplinter Review
Moving code around seemed to work for me. I don't understand the reason, honestly. It looks like the vbox needs to be build before the listbox can be modified. Inserting alerts in the code also helped - so there are likely some race conditions.
