Status: newassigned

I tried a quick test and there are issues with the notification code: NSUserNotificationCenter.defaultUserNotificationCenter() returns None in python and NSUserNotificationCenter.defaultUserNotificationCenter() returning None using PyInstaller.
The same code works when using the system installed python!
So we either have to fix this (not sure how) or use a subprocess... yuk.

The notification center API just isn't accessible from our environment - no idea why, changing the CFBundleIdentifier (lowercase or whatever) does not help, neither does signing the app, installing using a PKG, etc..

We can run the exact same code from the system python interpreter though...
So the patch above attempted to load the notification center directly and when that fails resorts to running the same code using the system interpreter via exec. And that also fails mysteriously.
I even tried calling "osascript -e .." and using applescript via pyobjc. None of these solutions work.
I give up.
