I don't know if this is your user on the forums, but there is this
thread [1] talking about the same issue. It points to a bug [2], which
they said might be related.

However, I experienced the same bug myself, with recurring alarms
going silent (and I got late at work :P). The fix that worked for me
was either

a) Going "offline mode", and then "online mode" again
b) Doing a) and rebooting. (I can't recall if I had to remove the battery)

If my "fixes" (doesn't deserve that name) doesn't work, I hope the links will.
