right. The PDA does what evolution does, which is to store somewhere
which alarms have been notified and which not. This is internal to the
apps, so the only way to make this work would be to make all apps remove
the alarm when notified, so that it never pops up again. This seems
wrong to me, since you might want to keep the original ical component,
to move it to another date or whatever.

I agree 100%.  Removing the event from the calendar would definitely be
the wrong behavior.

The most reasonable solution to this problem I can think of is the one
I've been arguing for: i.e. add a global preference that tells evolution
not to display any event reminders.  I think I (and others) have made
that point plenty of times, so I'll quit arguing for it now, and just
leave it up to y'all what the best thing to do is.

/me puts down his stick, and slowly backs away from the dead horse... :)
