On MOSS 2007 SP2, I have an announcement list that had audience targetting enabled. Users have email alerts set on that list for when new items change. The email displays the tartget audience as a guid - is that normal?

I tried to google for the information, but the closest I could find talks about the problem showing up in the version history.

Yes. Global audiences are stored as GUIDs within the audience targeting field, and the default email alert template doesn't do any extra formatting to make it more user-friendly.
