Weird problem - Calender moved as a subfolder of Contacts

I have the weirdest problem with someone's computer here (Outlook)!  If I open up their Outlook (it is attached to an Exchange server, and it is not PC specific), her calender is a sub-folder to her contacts.  If I try to move it out of there, I get the obvious "You can't move this" error.  

Does anyone know:

A) How this happened?
B) How to fix this annoyance?

Here's the normal proceedure:

STEP A : back up the calendar data to a PST file

STEP B : Download the Mfcmapi_bin.exe file from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;291794, extract the contents

STEP C: delete the calendar
1. Verify that a profile exists for the user's mailbox, that the profile is selected as the default profile, and that a user (who has permission to the user's mailbox) is successfully logged on to the client workstation.
2. Ensure that  no one is in the user’s mailbox and that Outlook  is not currently running on the workstation.
3. Double click the MFCmapi.exe utility, click OK;
4. Select Session -> "Logon and Display stores";
5. Select the mailbox profile and click OK;
6. Select MBD - Open Default Message Store.
7. Expand Root Container, expand Top of Information Store
8. Right Click Calendar Folder and select Delete Folder;
9. Select OK;
10. Select File -> Exit till you have closed all MFCmapi windows

STEP D:  use a command line switch to open Outlook and recreated the Calendar
1. Click Start, then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type the complete path to the Outlook.exe file.   Press the SPACEBAR once, and then type in the /resetfolders switch, the command line should read somthing like this:
   "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /resetfolders
3.  Click OK, which will launch Outlook and rebuild the Calendar Folder.

STEP E: import the calendar data from the PST file back into the mailbox calendar
