Observed with RT 3.6.6rc1:

A ticket is created in queue A, and has a reminder created in it.  The
reminder appears on both the ticket's "Reminders" page and on the
associated user's "Open Reminders" panel in the RT home page.

The ticket is moved to queue B.  Now the reminder no longer appears on
the ticket's "Reminders" page, but does still appear on the associated
user's "Open Reminders" panel in At-A-Glance.  However, because that
panel just links to the ticket, there's no way for the user to clear the

If the ticket is moved back to queue A, the reminder reappears.

lib/RT/Reminders.pm filters the collection of reminders for a ticket so
that it only includes objects in that ticket's queue -- which explains
the behavior.  Is there an underlying reason for that restriction,
though?  It's confusing to a user who considers a reminder to just be a
component of the ticket that ought to move when the ticket does, and
it's frustrating to a user who sees a task and can't do anything to mark
it completed.
