Ha ha! Yes, unfortunately my wife drew the line at bringing the iPhone to bed. ;-)

These are spread across six different projects, some single action, some not. (BTW, this is on my work machine, on which all of today's actions were correctly styled!)

Anyway, File->Rebuild Database did result in all the actions being correctly styled. It'll be interesting to see what they look like when I get home and view them on that machine.
Hmm, I wonder if it matters which machine gets to 3 pm first and whether (and in what order) syncs happen after that. That might help explain why the wrong coloring seems random.

We maintain a schedule of upcoming events, and schedule a timer to wake up and update the task status at the time of the first unprocessed event within the next few hours. If there isn't anything scheduled to happen in the next few hours, we schedule an event to check the schedule again later. And, of course, we update and rescan the schedule when task dates are edited.

When the timer fires, we scan through all the tasks and update their status. Any groups to which that task belongs (projects, contexts, folders) should update their status and counters as well, and finally any views displaying any of those tasks or groups should redraw with the new status.
