Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I'm running a recent install of debian jessie with MATE. To use bluetooth, I
installed the blueman package. I wanted to copy files from one device to

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

On trying to configure the connection to another device via bluetooth, I am
asked to confirm the connection and password via a notification. The problem
ist that the notification does not stay in the upper right corner, but it is
moving rather quickly to the left. It's so fast I can't read it, I had to make
screenshots of it. But I never managed to click the "confirm" button, which is
in the notification.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

As I found no other way to confirm a connection, blueman renders useless, I had
to send the files via mail.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Setting up a bluetooth connection.

PS: m-n-d kept using ca. 60% of the CPU, I had to kill the process (I only
realised that some time later, because of fan noise).It's completely
reproducible for me.
