Please note that `global-auto-revert-mode' reverts ALL Emacs buffers
when the underlaying file changes. This isn't just active for the
iCal.org buffer, but for all open buffers.

If you like this behavior, ok, but if you prefer it for the iCal.org
buffer only, enable auto-revert-mode (without global-) via a file-local
variable in it:
