Checking that dbus itself is working - whether the wastebasket shows as
full after deleting a file in nautilus, 'ps waux | grep dbus', 'dpkg -l
notification-daemon', whether other applications like Rhythmbox are able
to show notifications when configured to do so.

The original bug report #433211 does not include the usual list of
dependencies and versions so basic things like this cannot be checked,
possibly because the bug was filed direct from t'bird instead of using a
bug reporting tool.

Cesare, please use reportbug to generate the usual list of dependencies
for the program you think is responsible for this bug then send that
list to the bug report. Thanks.
