This sounds close to a bug I reported :

If I create an "All day event" with an alarm (eg. a birthday), when the 
alarm time has come, orage keeps notifying every second : the default 
orage alarm windows accumulate on the screen. If notification is 
enabled, on screen notifications soon fill the screen.

This happens whether "persistent alarm" is checked or not.

This does not happen if a start time and an end time are provided 
instead of the "All day event" option being checked.

This bug was corrected upstream :
http://git.xfce.org/apps/orage/commit/?id=9759f4fdaf49ba03b916a2d93221794d9ff02917 Fixed Bug 8525 Orage keeps notifying every second on "All day 

Yet, I'm unsure we're dealing with the same bug, as you say :

> there's no appreciable time between the
> the repeating sound and notifications"

In my case, the time between two notifications is precisely one second.

What do you think, Daniel ?

Anyway, the patch should be included in Wheezy to address bug 8525.
