Description

Ubuntu 16.04

(I am not sure how to describe that feature more, please check attachment).

It usually happens when I have a gnome-terminal attached, and then I connect a shadow server.
I've seen that "notification" when I attach the shadow server from the server itself.
The message gets blurry, as on normal Ubuntu, but it's not clickthrough - it "appears" to be selectable text, but in reality, it isn't

It's the same message as the client's one:

That notification is shown on the desktop being shadowed to indicate to the user that someone else is accessing the desktop.
You can get more details on this notification by running the shadow server with -d notify.
On Ubuntu, the notification is likely to be forwarded by the dbus notifier code. From then on, it is handled by the OS itself, so we can't do much about text not being select-able or click-ability.

You should be able to trigger the same notification code for testing by running:

python2 xpra/notifications/dbus_notifier.py

Looks like a normal OS notification to me.
