Token is not valid: Token does not exist (webdav sync)

Nextcloud version : 25.0.1 from Docker official images
Operating system and version : Ubuntu server

The issue you are facing:
I have configured several calendars on my NC instance for my user.

When Thunderbird/Davx5 sync calendars (and I suppose contacts information as well), in the NC server log, I find lots of lines including: “Token is not valid: Token does not exist: token does not exist” and CPU consumption gets higher (server and sometime my computer).

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Force syncing calendar from Thunderbird or DavX5
  2. Visualize NC log file

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Thank you in advance !

I observe the same error on my instnace - however not in Thunderbird - only DavX5 on Android.

Hi, i’m facing the same issue after upgrading to php 7.4 and nextcloud 23.
update to php 8.1 and nextcloud 25.0.3 didn’t solved the problem.
