I know of two such scripts, and I am the author of one. I'm not
currently able to load that URL, so I can't see the problem right
now. There are three places where this can go wrong: 1) in the
markup, 2) in the Greasemonkey script, and 3) at Google Calendar.
For 1), in my limited testing, almost no one is publishing time zones
correctly, which is only an obvious problem when you try to use an
event across time zones. For 2), if there is a bug, I'll need to see
the URL in question to track it down. For 3), I vaguely recall
Google Calendar doesn't always correctly convert times to the time
zone set in your preferences.
Most problems are in 1) and/or 3), which makes it difficult to track
down problems in 2). Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.
