[Dev] Chandler 0.6 - infinite zoom rectangles

I'm assuming the zoomrects are coming from some fault in the reminder
dialog mechanism... the dialog is put up when a timer fires and the
handler thinks there are reminders to present, and the box is taken down
when it thinks there aren't any reminders left; while the box is up, the
timer is set to fire as necessary to update the messages in the list ("5
minutes", "4 minutes"...). A disagreement here could cause the box to be
put up and taken down immediately, over and over, and that's probably
what you're seeing.
It'd be interesting to know if this happened after Chandler had been
running for a while, or whether this happened immediately upon starting
(In any case, feel free to assign the bug to me. Also, I don't know
about backing-up from the command line...)
