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, @

        state = gconf_client_get_bool (conf_client,
        if (!state) /* Should be old client*/ {
                GSList *source;
                gconf_client_set_bool (conf_client,
