Remove duplicate birthday events in iCal Apps
I've had several instances of birthdays in the iCal birthday calendar showing up twice. It finally bugged me enough to look at. I had Syncrospector up and was about to perform surgery, when I tried something simpler that didn't require a scalpel.

Uncheck Show Birthdays calendar in iCal's preferences, then recheck it. That cleaned it out for me.

I second that! Thank you ever so much, this has annoyed for several months!

I have until now resorted to manually removing the birthday information from each contact with duplicate entries in the birthday calendar, and then re-entering it again, but due to the incredibly buggy entry of birthdays in Leopard, this has been a real pain...
