I was developing a script based on inotify that would use very short-lived onscreen notifications. Turns out I can't, at least not with notify-send; I spent some time trying to debug my script before thinking it might be a bug elsewhere.

This needs fixing either by:

 - making osd-notify honour the setting, or
 - removing it from notify-send, or
 - clearly documenting the issue in notify-send --help

grump :(
