Bug Description

Binary package hint: notification-daemon

With every notification show, notification-daemon 0.3.6-0ubuntu2 leaks two X11 windows as the following commands demonstrate:

    notify-send "$(date)"
    xwininfo -root -children | grep notification-daemon | wc -l

The problem seems to be fixed in upstream version of notification-daemon 0.3.7.
Christian Hammond suggests to upgrade libnotify and notification-daemon anyway,
as releases 0.4.4 and 0.3.7 contain "lots of bug fixed and memory leak fixes".

Maybe solving this ticked also solves #67129.

Duh, I was not carefully enough: After applying 01_ubuntu_theme.patch and 02_make_ubuntu_theme_default.patch to notification-deamon 0.3.7 it also is leaking.

This patch fixed the leak for me. Maybe it makes sense to run valgrind on notification-deamon with ubunu theme, as notification-daemon is used frequently in ubuntu.

Changed in notification-daemon:
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

Chris moved some folders, so the patches have to be patched for 0.3.7.

This patch also required some code changes to apply.

Once again 102128.diff. 06_fix_prefix_for_dbus_binding_tool.patch is not needed anymore.
