Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

When the Device Notifier Plasma widget detects inserted media, it pops
up a notification offering possible actions for the media.  In Lucid,
these actions are difficult to click.

1) Insert any media and wait for Device Manager to pop up.
2) Click on the text of the media label or the "x actions for this device" text.
3) Nothing happens because it's the wrong place to click.
4) You must discover through trial and error that the blank space *beneath* the text is the correct place to click.
5) Similarly, to close the list of actions without performing an action, it's still necessary to click the blank space.

This is a cosmetic usability issue only, but it is annoying for
experienced users, and I would presume it would be quite confusing for
new KDE users.  Users generally expect to be able to click directly on
text to perform an action, rather than in some undefined blank space
adjacent to the text.
