Well maybe the dialog could say:

 (*) run the task once on [  ]/[  ]/[    ]

 ( ) run the task every [XXX] |seconds|
                              |hours  |
                              |days   |
                              |months |
                              |years  |

 ( ) run on specific dates:
     ...and there you specify dates by checking the dates you want

As you can see in my beautiful ascii-art GUI, the 3 options are in a
radio box, so they are mutually exclusive.
