When using giver, the recipient used to be presented with an option to accept or deny a file. With notify-osd this is no longer an option. The notification pops up and says what the bubble used to but there is no way to respond to the request.
Giver is currently using notifications to present the recipient of a transfer with an option to accept or deny a file. However, implementations like notify-osd do not let applications use notifications for such interactions, and instead encourage the use of better interaction mechanisms, like a dialog box or a morphing application window.
This bug was fixed in the package notify-sharp - 0.4.0~r3032-1ubuntu1
notify-sharp (0.4.0~r3032-1ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low
- Reverse the patch merged upstream which swallows actions in·
notification. It is more appropriate for applications to make·
that decision rather than a library. Thanks David Barth. (LP: #349550)

I honestly an truly do not understand the Ubuntu bug reporting and fixing process since this is clearly not fixed. Perhaps what was "fixed" was the ability for giver to bypass "notify" and present the user with it's own dialog box and it's up to giver to modify it's code to make it happen. Sorry, I wish I had a work around for this problem.
