Hi All,

Just uncovered something else different
between xfce4-notifyd and libnotify.

With libnotify, when Thunderbird pops up a
new mail alert, if you do not let it time
out and do not click the "X" in the upper
right corner, but instead click on the pop
up itself, Thunderbird will open to the eMail.
(Really messes up my Thunderbird tabs.)

With xfce4-notifyd, it just exits the popup.
I have no idea is this is part of xfce4-notifyd's

Xfce4-notifyd colors are prettier though: they
match your theme. But I like the extra
functionality of libnotify.
