I have now read through the Bug Report. It is interesting.
All that I can report is that I do have migrated Notes in what appears
to be the correct place in $HOME/.local/share/notes as described in the
Bug Report. However I don't know how to get them to work with KNotes.
However, KNotePad will open them and they do appear to be my notes.

I also can report that my old alarms mysteriously reappeared after I
restarted KDE more than once.
Also, I think that it was just a coincidence that I was receiving error
messages about the alarms while the KNote migrator was running.
I am still getting KAlarm error message pop up windows occasionally.

I will try the KDEPIM-Users list. Perhaps someone can tell me how to
configure KNotes by hand.
