Today using iCal 3.0.7 (1284) and Mail 3.6 (935/935.3) in Mac OS X 10.5.7,
Build 9J61, this behaviour recurred. Interestingly, not long after I
reported <https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12832> relating
to alarms missing from Chandler Hub.

Here's a screen shot (14:16 UK time) of iCal in foreground, Mail in
background, both communicating pretty much non-stop: 


After a long while I decided to restart the OS. 

Following the restart, Mail again spent a long time Reconciling To Do's
(sic), eventually a dialogue:

I opted to Get iCal Versions. 

Still, it seems that Mail is endlessly reconciling to-dos. 

I wonder whether the apparent bug 12832, relating to alarms and Chandler
Server, is directly related to this behaviour in iCal and Mail.

I could easily delete the three items from the test collection (12832),
which would probably clear the symptoms, but I guess that it's useful to
leave this oddity in place for troubleshooting purposes …
