[Pkg-gpe-maintainers] Is libgpeschedule intended to work on 'normal' systems?

I've recently installed gpe-clock, because I want to have a taskbar
alarm clock that does not need gnome's or kde's specific taskbars.

Now, when setting trying to set an alarm, it complains that

/var/spool/at/1198277160.1-1000: No existe el fichero o el directorio
ERROR-GPE: Imposible fijar alarma

(ie: no such file, can't set an alarm)

I've chased this to libgpeschedule's trying to directly mess with at's
spool files. Why doesn't it simply use the at command to do the
scheduling? Or, if it's not even using atd to fire off the alarms, why
use a directory that suggests it does? In any case, that's not even
the directory standard at uses.

I'm not filing a bug for this, because I'm aware my expectations of
what's right may be wildly off, since I have no knowdlege at all of GPE.
