Agendas and reminders are completely different things. Thus reminder  
preferences don't apply to agendas.

> - Reminders arrive a random amount of minutes late (5, 10, 20, 30,  
> 60, no rhyme or reason)

Do they arrive late, or are they sent late? Are the dates in the  
reminder messages correct?

> - Reminders have recently stopped working completely, regardless of settings

Reminders no longer use VFS is using the alarms.php script.
