By default, Plasma uses the same widget to display notifications and 
file operations, but file operations and notifications are two distinct 
elements. Enabling Ayatana notifications only affect notifications, not 
file operations (it would be wrong to make file operation widgets 
passive widgets!)

I am surprised connecting to wireless appears at the top. Which network 
management system do you use? Both knetworkmanager and wicd use 
notifications and should display with other notifications.
