If there is, I've not found it.  And, I've looked very
hard.  Cron and anacron and whatever daemon
gnome-schedule uses sure aren't the answer.  I've
tried every combination I can think of to get a simple
"Hello, world!" shell script to run at a set time
without success ..

That's a great tip to know, and I will check it out. 
I'd also like to point out that looking for kalarm
substitutes for Gnome is reall unnecessary, since
kalarm itself appears to run fine under Gnome.  You
don't get the little clock in the taskbar, but
everything else that I need is there and works just
like it does in KDE.
