Fallback alert has leftmost button as default

Bug #353843 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
notify-osd (Ubuntu)
Fix Released
Karl Lattimer

Bug Description

notify-osd 0.9.7-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu Jaunty

1. Invoke a notification fallback alert box. For example:
  a. Choose "Lock Screen".
  b. Choose "Leave Message".
  c. Enter a message, and choose "Save".
  d. Unlock the screen.
2. Focus the "gnome-screensaver-dialog" fallback alert box, if it is not focused already.
3. Press Enter.

What happens: The "Cancel" button is triggered.
What should happen: As described in <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NotifyOSD#Fallback%20alert%20boxes>, "None of the buttons should be set as the default (because the system can’t detect that any of them are safe as a default)."

A similar problem, with notifications using custom actions, was apparently fixed as bug 330091.

Is this a duplicate in a sense of bug 332178 - Dialogues are not HIG-compliant?

They could be fixed at the same time, but not necessarily, so it's probably better to keep them separate. (In theory bug 332178 is six separate bugs, but at least five of them are being fixed at once.)

The attached branch unsets can_default on the two buttons in dialog.c, I'm not 100% sure if it has been branched from the correct branch (lp:notify-osd) but am hopeful :)

I'll discuss with mirco and put in a merge request once the branch has been scanned.
