Bug Description

Binary package hint: giver

I guess Ubuntu is especially affected by Debian Bug#539050 (, as it uses notify-osd by default:

  Giver currently adds action buttons to the notification windows, even if
  the server does not support it. This breaks giver with e.g. notify-osd,
  which is currently in NEW.

  Quoting Desktop Notifications Specification, Section 3[1]:

    If a client requires a response from a passive popup, it should be
    coded such that a non-focus-stealing message box can be used in the
    case that the notification server does not support this feature.
