If I understand this correctly, this is the same issue as upstream bug #594153 "setting alarms on meetings owned by others is prevented".

There is patch attached to that bug. AFAIK the upstream will not update 2.28, they moved to 2.30. May be Ubuntu will be willing to apply that patch to it's own packages?

The upstream bug is: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=594153

Don't know how to link this bug to upstream one.

Upstream bug comments this was tested on Ubuntu Lucid. Any chance of getting this added to a Lucid update and/or PPA?

This is a showstopper for migrating desktops in our exchange-based environment.

Also committed to gnome-2-28 branch by request. Distros will have to pick this up for themselves though.
