I did not follow the full discussion, but it seems like the
xfce4-notify bug was fixed, leaving only a notify-sharp bug (lack of
robustness in the face of unexpected input from the notification

If this isn't fixed in time for squeeze, maybe it would make sense to

	Conflicts: xfce4-notifyd (<< 0.1.0-3)

from the libnotify0.4-cil package to cope better with partially
upgraded systems?  It's a shame there is no Broken-by dependency to use.

Even better, would it be reasonable to fix xfce4-notifyd in lenny?
