Help Google Calender & Reminders

Is anyone else having this problem?

Since the new Android 4.0 update, every new Google calendar event I add has a reminder time. Personally, I hate those reminders so I never use them. My default reminder time still says "None". Yet, each new event is showing a bell next to it and the reminders are going off. Each time I edit the event, I watch it switch from "None" to "On time", even if I have literally just changed it.

I've also tried stopping and restarting Google calendar sync, cleared the data, forced stop. Any other suggestions?
