FWIW, the notification bits do need dbus, but they don't actually
require that the Emacs dbus support be enabled.  You can configure
'--without-dbus --with-libnotify'; dbus will still be linked in, just
not visible to elisp.

BTW I've been playing with your test cases some more.  I think we are
seeing generic gtk bug.  This bug seems relevant:


Perhaps I can make this work by waiting for a size-change signal.  I'm
not sure if this is reliable, though.  Maybe I can have it either wait
for a size-change or a timeout, and throw an error in the timeout
