Since I can't reproduce this in the lab, I'm left to make some assumptions about why this is happening. I'm guessing that this is due to some kind of error with the user's Facebook credentials, which is causing Facebook to return an error message rather than the user's iCalendar file. I am going to change the code so that it sets the authentication error flag when this behavior is encountered, so the user is notified to re-establish their credentials. Hopefully that will get things working again for users...
