Bug Description

Binary package hint: notification-daemon

If multiple applications spit out lots of notification bubbles around the same time they all overlap - which makes some of them hard to see and doesn't look very good - some of the older mockups for the notification daemon seemed to show 'stacking' notification bubbles. This would be better...

The developers seem to show that the notifications _should_ stack, but perhaps that is just when they don't have an icon that 'owns' them in the status bar?

I'm on an up to date Feisty...

Thanks for your bugreport.

Can you please post a screenshot of the overlap? Please note that notification bubbles that point to a certain widget (e.g. to the notification-area) can not easily overlap because of the constrain with the pointing.
