More the like same user from multiple systems.  For example, they  would 
have mozilla calendar on windows at home and Linux at work, iCal on a 
mac laptop.  They wouldn't shut down the home or work ones.   I think 
they had them configured to synchronize automatically, so often it would 
result in the file being accessed by 2 clients at once an corrupting the 
ical file.  Maybe this was because of bugs in Mozilla Calendar 
synchronization, because I didn't think webdav should allow that.
