Bug ID: 410863
           Summary: Incidence is automatically selected in reminder
                    window, allowing for accidental postponing and
           Product: korganizer
           Version: 5.10.3
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: reminder daemon (korgac)
  Target Milestone: ---

When a reminder is triggered, its incidence is automatically selected in the
reminder window. This means that if a reminder triggers while the reminder
window is already showing, several incidences can become selected, so that
actions (postponing and dismissal) will affect all.

One particularly likely scenario is the following.
A user arrives to his PC after 2 reminders triggered. He selects the first
incidence, postpones by a duration of x. He then postpones the second incidence
by the same duration of x.

x time after he postponed the first reminder, the reminder for that same
incidence triggers again. The user moves the cursor over the Dismiss button.
Just before the user presses the button, x time after the second reminder was
postponed, the reminder for the second incidence triggers again. The user
pushes the Dismiss button while both incidences are selected, accidentally
dismissing the second incidence's reminder.

Not selecting incidences by default would already solve most of this bug, but
ticket #188848 covers a different scenario which is worth considering when
solving is best.
