Thanks for the report.  I checked upstream and could not find a matching bug.Please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla located at http://bugs.kde.org for the particular component involved.

Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, please add the upstream info to this report. We will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.

Thanks in advance.

That's a Qt bug, it should be reported to Trolltech's task tracker, not bugs.kde.org.
Comment 3 Steven M. Parrish 2008-11-22 18:07:08 EST
It has been over 30 days since the last request for an update.  Closing this as INSUFFICIENT DATA.  Please feel free to reopen this bug if it is still an issue and if you have the requested data.

It doesn't just have a signature of "s", but requires a lot of parameters:
    <method name="Notify">
      <arg name="app_name" type="s" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="id" type="u" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="icon" type="s" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="summary" type="s" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="body" type="s" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="actions" type="as" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="hints" type="a{sv}" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="timeout" type="i" direction="in"/>
      <arg name="return_id" type="u" direction="out"/>
I don't think the strings are the problem, maybe the a{sv} is. But in any case, this should be reported to the trolltech.com bug tracker:
