Aha, that solved it. First kde-notify was rearing it head. Once I
disabled it, then xfce4-notifyd was doing the same.

Once I disabled both (commenting both the services at
/usr/share/dbus-1/services) namely org.kde.knotify.service and
org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service the Exec part, rebooted
and it was working as it should be.

So false alarm at my end at least. Maybe the others need to check as well.
