Sebastien, but *should* login indicators be considered queued messages?
By design, they stay in the applet only for a brief period. Therefore, they are,
from what I could understand, a tool for quick reaction.

When you disable notifications, you are disabling the very thing you are
supposed to react to, because login indicators do not change the applet
icon to draw attention (and rightfully so, they are not that important).

In other words, when you disable login notifications, the only way to use
the login indicators is to be lucky and click on the applet between the
time it appeared and the time it disappears. If you don't receive IMs and
mail very often, this is unlikely to happen and, when it happens, I
believe it can confuse the user like I described in the report.
