That is correct, only once in the past, my bad. (Which explains some of
the weirdness in my own, more complicated setup.) Still not sure why it
would be appropriate for a TODO _as a default_ (not to show it for
today, but for future days), but like I said: we're operating above my
pay grade. Just _trying_ to provide some answers to your questions, not
sure if this is helping.

If I am on the right track here, org-agenda-show-future-repeats controls
future repetitions, and org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat controls
repetitions for today? Is that correct? (Feel completely free to ignore
this if I am on the wrong track.) I am not sure how this would work for
timed events, since "today" and "future" are not mutually exclusive:
part of today is still in the future.

Sounds like the best option to me. I can try give better informed
comments after I see what the effect will be in my setup.
