Yes, though I've ascertained that this only happens when the included
file is not already being visited in a buffer when calendar is invoked
-- that's what triggers the inappropriate function in find-file-hook.

Hm, I'd rather not take that advice ;-).  But I've now put the function
on post-command-hook and so far it seems to DTRT and also avoids the
problem with find-file-hook.

Thanks for the helpful feedback.
