Looks like something went wrong in the Share system. Have you changed 
charsets in the database recently? Also, what do you mean by "cannot see 
its calendar"? They cannot see it in the calendar list, or they just 
cannot see events in the calendar? Did you try to increase Horde logging 
level and check for SQL errors?

If clearing data for a user doesn't solve the problem, then there is no 
point exporting/importing. Have you tried with a newly created user?

Not currently. You could investigate how "horde-remove-user-data" is 
written and use it as an example to create something like 
"export-user-data", though.
