I want to clear a specific system application's cache — Calendar & Calendar Storage. How do I do it in ICS?

I've stopped the running app:

but cannot find the Clear data / Clear cache like before:

I'm on a Nexus S and I prefer a way to do it natively, without needing to install an app just for that.

I see Calendar and Calendar Storage in my "All apps" list in Settings.

If I open either of them, I also see the old, familiar Clear Data and Clear Cache buttons.

So bottom line, I couldn't see those buttons because I was accessing the apps via the Running Apps section, instead of the All Apps one... – Marius Butuc Mar 19 '12 at 12:39
