Would it not be possible to store the password in gnome-keyring and be
shared. The other providers work this way, alarm-daemon would start the
authenticated calendars if it finds that the passwords is stored
gnome-keyring. It would also check whether the password can be retrieved
between intervals AFAICR.

In case a calendar is marked for alarms and if alarm-daemon was not able
to retrieve the password, would it be a good idea to show a small
warning icon in the panel, which could indicate the issue and mention
that evolution needs to be started in order to retrieve the password ?
Also inform the user that the password needs to be remembered for
alarm-daemon to work fine.

I dont think the earlier behaviour used to be like this. This should be
a bug introduced at some state IMHO.
