Syncing iCal with Google Calendar and CalDAV froze my iCal

I tried following the directions on the Google site to sync my iCal with the Google calendar but it froze my iCal.
I am using Snow Leopard and iCal 4.0. Could the iCal 4.0 be the problem? If so, any workaround?
These are the directions off the Google site:
"Only Apple iCal 3.x (on Mac OS X v10.5+) supports CalDAV sync.
To set up CalDAV support for Google Calendar in Apple's iCal, follow these steps:
Open Apple iCal, go to Preferences and then the Accounts tab.
Click on the + button to add an account.
Under Account Information, enter your Google Account username and password.
Under Server Options, add the following URL:
Replace 'firstname.lastname@example.org' with the email address that you use to log in to Calendar. Make sure to include the '@domain.com' portion (which is @gmail.com for Gmail users) in this section.
Under the Delegation tab, select the calendars you'd like to add to iCal by checking the boxes next to them. You may need to hit refresh to get the latest list of calendars.
Add your email address to your Address Book card by selecting Add Email. You'll be prompted to add your email address only if your address is not already in your Address Book.
You won't be able to invite or email guests to Google Calendar events within iCal if your address is not in your Address Book.
Your Google Calendar will now appear in iCal's list of calendars, and changes you make to your Google Calendar in iCal will be reflected when you sign in to Google Calendar.
Event information will automatically refresh every five minutes. You can change this interval by opening the iCal > Preferences > Accounts menu and selecting a new refresh interval under the 'Refresh calendars' drop-down. Keep in mind you can also force a refresh by selecting a calendar and pressing the Apple and R keys at the same time.
Calendars that are checked but disabled have already been added to iCal - you can remove them from within iCal."

I'd problems with Google Sync + iCal. I just made a normal change and, after that, iCal just didn't open anymore. It gives an error as soon as i press the icon. I'd to reinstall it.
This was not simple, but googling it i found a way to uninstall and then reinstall it.Macbook White Unibody 2,4Ghz
