I'm getting non-printable characters in the libnotify messages popping on-screen after enabling "Show tray balloons" option in Alerts. Specifically, the codes are appearing in the title of the alert, right before the username. I have "Colored nicks" enabled, and my informed guess is that somewhere "colored nicks" inserts color codes for the text rendering engine before the "show tray balloon" code is called.
I think the simplest fix would be to add code to strip out control codes in plugin-tray.c. I'm busy right now, but if nobody picks this up for a while I'll submit a patch.
Thanks for looking at this!
