I use 11.04, Classic and sometimes the notifications just pile up, e.g. when I open thunderbird, and login to empathy, and start playing my music, all at once. I can see messages popping for 15 minutes or more. The Ubuntu wiki on notify-osd mentions Flood Prevention. Why isnt it being applied in this case? This overflow/flood didnt happen in 10.04.
I tried killing and restarting the notify-osd process, but then new notifications dont show up. The Me-menu hangs up, and I have to log out to make it alright.
Is this a bug? How do I flush the queue? Is there any workaround?
EDIT: I was able grab a screenshot. And now, all of a sudden, the messages have stopped popping.
