well, the term "snooze" implies to only postpone it for a short time. if
you want to postpone something for a day (or something like that), i
would ask you to edit the appointment data, instead of using the snooze
function. (at least this was always my feeling about it when using evo.)

did you file this as a bug report? filing reports against evo can be
pretty discouraging, i know. but please do this.

<irony>heh, to me it sounded like you would spend half of the day with
clicking on snooze buttons to postpone events by an hour. ;-)</irony>

the problem is, like always, the lack of human ressources. triaging
evolution bug reports takes more time than a half-time job, trust me.
