It could also happen if you have a phone turned off for some time and
there are at least two past alarms which will be started simultaneously
by atd during system startup and each of them will schedule future
alarms in the race.

I should fix this issue when I find some time for it, but I cannot
promise when it will happen.

Yes, you can delete all /var/spool/at/*ffa* files and then start
ffalarms GUI or set new alarm in command line
(for example: ffalarms -s now) and they will be rescheduled (you can
check it with ffalarms -l).
