Sorry for my lack of explanation. I have tested, and can confirm that
this bug _only_ happens with xfce4-notifyd. Both notification-daemon and
notify-osd work fine with it. Tracing with dbus-monitor shows that the
NotificationClosed signal which is sent out by xfce4-notifyd only has
one integer, whereas in notify-osd and notification-daemon, there are
two. The spec[1] also confirms that there should be two. Perhaps you
could look into this?

As for why Banshee crashed, it's not Banshee's fault, but notify-sharp's
fault. The exception occurred within notify-sharp code, while searching
for that extra integer I was talking about (UINT32 reason, perhaps).
