[Bug 705498] [NEW] Notifications should not show up on the unlock screen


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: notify-osd

Two issues:
1.) When locking the screen, currently active notifications are shown on the locked screen (and the unlock screen).
2.) Critical notifications that are started when the screen is locked will show up on the unlock screen.

To reproduce:
1. Run: notify-send "foo"
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+L to lock the screen
3. Move the mouse to show the unlock screen.
=> The notification is shown on the locked screen and the unlock screen.

1. Run: sleep 5 ; notify-send -u critical "foo"
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+L to lock the screen.
3. Wait a bit (for the notification to start), then move the mouse to show the unlock screen.
=> The notification is shown on the unlock screen. With notify-send I couldn't make a new critical notification show on the unlock screen, but that seems to reliably work when resuming from standby (see bug 554459 -> disconnected then connected notification).
