two calendars on BB (synced with BES) - one named desktop, one named device default - creates duplicates

I'm not sure exactly when this appeared (it seemed to coincide with when I did a Blackberry Transporter move from BB Professional Express 4 to BES Express 5.01), but one of my users has two calendars and it's creating duplicates only on his BB (his Outlook does not have duplicates).

When I go into the calendar (on the BB), and I go to options, I see two calendars.  The calendars are "desktop" and "device default."  They highlight appointments in different colors so I can tell that one calendar is showing some appointments in one color and the other calendar is showing duplicates in the other color.  Not all calendar items are duplicated

When I go to options, if I type rset, it says:
"this will erase your desktop calendar and reload it from your server"

It then erases all the appointments from the desktop calendar (I can tell because they are shaded a different color) but then reloads them.  I can see in the calendar that some appointments are red (desktop) and some are blue (device default).  

I'd guess what I want to do is remove the device default calendar since it seems the desktop calendar is the one that it is syncing via BES.  If I hit the menu button when highlighting device default, the only options I have are call voicemail, switch application, and close.

How would I remove the device default calendar from the BB?  If I could avoid a wipe and reactivate, I'd prefer it.
