They are now, yes.

Exactly, that was the problem.

Actually I didn't do this either, but that fix was unrelated to the
problem of not highlighting cache-present events which was fixed by
implementing get_object(). 

Fixing the notifications made event appear/disappear as soon as they
were created/deleted in Outlook.

All fixes are in evolution-brutus-1.1.0 as released 5 minutes ago on the
evolution list.
