Is there a way to get the daemon to flush its queue?

Asked by John Gill

I use a bip-irc proxy and pidgin.

When I reconnect to the proxy I get a big backlog of messages (bip is set up to cache a lot of history). This typically triggers a flood of notifications.

The new system queues these, but the result is I get a flood of notifications for old stuff in the IRC history for the next 10-15 minutes.

It would be handy if there was a way to tell the daemon to just flush the queue.

Restarting the dbus service might help...

sudo /etc/init.d/dbus restart

Although that will zap a whole bunch of things along with the notifications.

Thanks. Just killing and restarting notify-osd works as well

   pkill -f notify-osd

This at least keeps me sane for the time being.
