Actually, no, it is not a Ubuntu-specific change. I looked up both
2.23.90 (Intrepid) and SVN, and both versions have the following in
evolution/calendar/gui/alarm-notify/config-data.c, @
config_data_get_calendars:

...
        state = gconf_client_get_bool (conf_client,
                                      "/apps/evolution/calendar/notify/notify_with_tray",
                                      NULL);
        if (!state) /* Should be old client*/ {
                GSList *source;
                gconf_client_set_bool (conf_client,
                                      "/apps/evolution/calendar/notify/notify_with_tray",
                                      TRUE,
                                      NULL);
...

So... BANG! gconf notify_with_tray is magically set...

I think this is worth a bugzilla, or a launchpad bug.

And... I am curious on what OpenSUSE offers...

.hggdh..

p.s. I have just unset notify_with_tray, and I will check what happens
when I restart Evo ;-)
