'ical' calendar does not reincarnate

I don't use ical myself, but it seems to be a Tcl/Tk application.

So, if it has a .icalrc file or something similar that uses Tcl commands
for customisation, you can probably add a 'wm command . ical' to it
(this sets the WM_COMMAND property on the main window to 'ical'). If
not, you could try adding the same command to one of the Tcl scripts in

I'm not sure if that'll make it work with session management, but it's
worth a try.
