Subject: alarm-clock: Include/exclude dates show up as (null) and are ignored

Package: alarm-clock
Version: 1.2.5-1
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze sid


When setting a "scheduled" alarm, adding date inclusions or exclusions
results in the dates showing up as (for example) "(null) 19" or
"(null) 20" if August 19th or September 20 is selected, and then the
inclusion/exclusion is ignored (alarms still go off even when they
should be excluded, or skipped whe they should be included). Any day
does this, it's not just August or September that's weird. 

Similarly it's impossible to switch a "scheduled" alarm to a "single
day" alarm. But strangely "single day" alarms work and can be edited
with the calendar GUI. Very strange.

The patch I provided in my last mail fixes the bug I originally
described, but didn't completely fix the original problem of the
original source using some invalid methods to grab a localized month
string; in particular editing a pre-existing alarm with include/exclude
dates showed up as "(null) 20" or whatever even though they showed up as
"August 20" while originally creating (and are respected as such when
triggering alarms).

This patch includes the changes from my previous patch, and fixes the
display problem when editing pre-existing events (ie: ignore the
previous patch and just use this one).

Hopefully this helps!
