Using Cosmo / Bedework CalDAV with Evolution

This evening I was toying around with Cosmo, Bedework and Evolution v2.9.6 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. In a perfect world that only would have taken a few minutes…

Unfortunately, Evolution did not really like  the URL I tried to feed it for Cosmo:
caldav://localhost:8080/cosmo/home/testuser/Cosmo – for the current release

With Bedework I tried the following with partial success:
http://localhost:8080/ucaldav/user/caluser1/calendar – for the current quickstart release
Evolution fails to import any data from the server. However, events added in Evolution are correctly displayed on the users webcalendar. When pointing a browser to the URL I get this HTML code:

Very strange … the table statement seems to be missing a closing bracket? Could that be the error? I will have to take a closer look at this …

so long
