Oh, I know that! I can tell the difference from a new feature and a
bug. Sometimes even between one of the famous "undocumented features"
and a bug, too. ;¬)

What I was getting at was this: without Compiz, they're ugly and
rather intrusive, so I'd like to either reconfigure them or turn them
off - but I can't do that without knowing what is providing them or
what they are called.

Now I have "libnotify" as a lead, I shall JFGI and see what I can find out.

I've been using Jaunty for a couple of days now, as Linux can connect
to my home WLAN perfectly reliably whereas XP on this machine seldom
can. I must say that whereas it looks pleasant, it's significantly
slower than before and noticeably slower than XP SP3, even with
antivirus and antispyware running on XP. :¬(

It may be time to start experimenting with Xubuntu or Crunchbang or
something, I think...
