Description Martin Bednar 2013-01-09 00:45:41 UTC
When I disable "Show filetransfers and jobs" in the notification configuration, upon plasma start there is a spinner that never ends in the notification widget.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.disable filetransfers and jobs in the notifiaction widget configuration
2.kquitapp plasma-desktop
Actual Results:  
Never ending spinner with no notification

Expected Results:  
Nothing (except filetransfers not being shown)

enabling and disabling filetransfers and jobs in the widget configuration stops the spinner.

Might be relevant : in the console output, this appears while changing the configuration :

I tried to debug this, but was not successful, needs someone understanding QML.

The following patch disables the animation, so that it does not consume CPU cycles. Now it is no longer required to change the settings on each start.
