Andrew, you mention that it worked in a previous version. Is caching enabled for the shared calendar, and if so, do you get different results with caching disabled?

Also, which version of GData are you using with Lightning 1.7?

Provider for Google Calendar 0.17.

Caching is disabled.

Restarting Thunderbird has restored the calendar. 

I've been playing with this issue for about a week now, removing the calendar, re-installing old versions of add-on etc. There have been times when the calendar has been visible but I've not been able to update it or it's simple not been visible. 

However when I finally get round to logging the issue, after a restart of TB the issue seen to have cleared up, (for now). 

Interestingly on this occasion I was asked to resubmit my login credentials.
The defaults offered were to a different gmail account (although one owned by me). 

I can only surmise that some part of a cache has flushed itself through either locally or at the Google end. Possible some cached login details were for the wrong account(?).

So I will continue to monitor for the next week or so, and will either update with further details or suggest to cold this issue.
