Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kpackagekit

Every few minutes, a notification icon pops up, just for a few seconds. Looks like it only checks for updates, and doesn't actually notify me of anything - but it is annoying because when it appears, it causes other icons to move, the taskbar to change size, and so on. I can't close it because it disappears too soon, and I can't find a way to disable it.
It looks like it is created by /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kpackagekitsmarticon.
