Definitely a bug, a crash shouldn't ever happen. Unfortunately, it will
be hard to fix, unless one of the developers (or anyone else who is
willing to work on fixing the bug) gets their hand on a webcal address
with which they can reproduce this crash.

I do not use vcalendar at all, and am not really familiar with it, but
you can try removing the offending webcal from folderlist.xml in the
Claws Mail user directory (the one you mentioned in your mail). You can
carefully remove just the one <folderitem ... /> line with the webcal
address. It will probably be somewhere near the bottom.

Do it while Claws Mail is not running, and make sure you make a backup
copy of the file, just in case.
