Quick question -

I'm using latest stable ubuntu precise 12.04 with unity (2d) and just
switched to claws today.  i'm having some difficulty with
notifications, and i'm wondering if anyone else out there has quick
pointers to save me some time - or if i'm just missing any obvious
configuration options.

i saw already saw this old bug report which tells me that something
should be working:

i also followed these steps earlier on although they didn't originally

i was originally using claws 3.8.0 from the ubuntu repos but Woody on
IRC pointed me to the ppa.  after upgrading to 3.9.0 claws
finally appears in the unity notification menu - but the list of
accounts underneath it seems to come and go, i haven't figured out yet
why. also i still haven't gotten any actual notification balloons or
the blue notification menu icon on new emails. (sending myself a test
email then clicking "get mail" to force a check.)  i'm using IMAP with
a gmail account.

anyone else who has gotten claws working with unity?  am i skipping
something obvious?  any tips are appreciated.
