I had such an issue before on Debian wheezy + MATE upstream 1.6 deb  
packages. I highly recommend pulling in mate-notification-daemon via  
the meta package and removing the alternative dependency on

Also: I will file a bug against notification-daemon in Debian and ask  
for renaming that bin:package. Because:

   o It does not provide notification-daemon support to non-GNOME desktops
   o It bears the exact name of the virtual package  
notification-daemon, but does not provide
     the notification-daemon functionality to other desktop shells.
