BTW when I run that, I see

  New time invalidates preset alarm: disabling

although the alarm was already disabled (last time I used was weeks ago).
I then set the alarm for tomorrow's morning, just to see what would
happen, and ran retutime again.  The message did not appear.

I think the hardware alarm is set for a date + time, rather than just
time, and that retutime disables the alarm if the time you're setting is
past the original alarm datetime.
