I filed this against mate-panel as that's what provides the Notification
Area applet. I agree that GTK 3.14 is to blame -- I see the issue
primarily in GTK 3 apps.

I reported this issue upstream as well:
https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-panel/issues/248. There's a related
issue that documents additional GTK 3.14 brokenness:

I'm not sure the best course of action here. If it's GTK 3.14 behavior
we may not be able to work around it. I was hoping that perhaps the
applet could specify the click behavior, but I'm not sure.
