stumbled across a new bug with notifications in cinnamon desktop

When applications are running in full screen, notifications does not appear in cinnamon desktop. When running applications in full screen like watching a movie in media player, viewing firefox in full screen and if there is any notification bubbles appearing it doesn’t show up. It only appears below the full screen application. Whatever be the criticality of the notification it doesn’t appear. This could lead to many problems like not getting to know when the battery is getting low, when disconnected from a network etc.

Ideally notifications should appear on top of whatever application the user is running, but this is not the case.

This bug could be reproduced by running the command notify-send in terminal as given below,

sleep 10 ; notify-send hi

and run an application in full screen and wait for 10 secs and check whether ‘hi’ appears. If it doesn’t appear, you are affected by this bug.

I have reported this bug in launchpad linux mint page here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1162198
