I have Calendar: Default at the bottom left corner of the event editing window. If you mean that, then yes. I have only default and no additional alarms. I can't test right now, as there is no "Last.." options now. I don't want to play around with the system date as some programs and events may go nuts.

The "Default" in bottom left corner is the name of your calendar. The default alarm is set in Options->Calendars ("Default alarm (minutes)" setting). If you don't have it set and you don't add an alarm to the event then you won't see any alarms.

I can only see Default alarm (minutes) set to 0. So i guess i don't have an alarm setup. But i don't need one. I don't need to be reminded about an event prior the event, i just want to be notified when the event happens.

And this works for every other event i have. I just open New event window, clear the All day event checkbox, set a date and time, add Summary, maybe select a different category or just leave it as Default and hit OK. When the time comes it shows the popup on the desktop. I have an event, which is set to show at 11:30 on every first Saturday of the month and today it showed the popup. So option with "First day of the month" is working fine. And on March 30th the one with the "Last Sunday of the month" didn't show the popup. maybe it is related to daylight saving changes. Though it didn't worked with Last Monday of the month on March 31st either while i was testing. Will have to wait till the end of the month to do testing. Or i may try to test this in a virtual machine, if i'll have time for this.

Btw, i'm using a template for new events. Thinking maybe that's the cause, because i think last time events worked fine with "Last day" option and i have made a template maybe a few months ago. My template is only clearing the All day event checkbox and setting category to Default.

I've just tried to create an event: uncheck All day event, set to 14:43, no alarms, set the recurrence to 12 months and Last Saturday of the month. And this time Event window did pop up at 14:43. Maybe it was related to the daylight savings last month and it now works ok in April.

Re: Alarm not showing up (last Sunday of the month) 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
A problem is repeating, now with a regular one time event. I have created and event a few months ago and was postponing it for days and weeks and it was showing a popup fine. Yesterday i have edited it and set a new date and time (today). i have done this many times with other events. But this time it just becomes grayed out in the manager when the time comes, but it doesn't show up on the desktop in the popup. I have compared a working event with this one (exported to ics) and can't see a difference. This is the one not showing a popup:

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
PRODID:-//Rainlendar/iCalendarPlugin V1.12//EN
VERSION:2.0
METHOD:PUBLISH
BEGIN:VEVENT
DTSTAMP:20140715T032353Z
TRANSP:OPAQUE
UID:{b7479946-9085-c54b-b21f-9f9aff47ddf7}
SUMMARY:play shadowrun
CATEGORIES:[Cyan]
CLASS:PRIVATE
LAST-MODIFIED:20140908T184306Z
DTSTART:20140908T184800Z
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

I ended up creating a new event for this. I have preserved the bugged one. Maybe something wrong with that UID.

Corresponding line from alarms.ini:
\{b7479946-9085-c54b-b21f-9f9aff47ddf7\}=1410266010

and it is in the [AlarmSnoozeTimes] section

Today both the new and the problematic event showed up in the popup.. I have played around with it and i think i have found the cause. If event shows up in the popup (at the event time) you can edit it and set the new time and it works fine. But if you postpone it, say for 30 mins and then edit and set new time before that postpone time, it won't show up. It is still using that postpone setting. Which is a bit confusing. I thought editing and setting new time should remove any postpones.
