Notification Balloon not shown, weird scenario

Hey, I am not getting the notification balloon, but I get the Event Logs. Below is the code of the Action class.

void actionPerformed(AnActionEvent e) {         Notifications.Bus.register(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, NotificationDisplayType.BALLOON)         Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title', 'Description', NotificationType.WARNING))         Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title', 'Description', NotificationType.INFORMATION))         Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title', 'Description', NotificationType.ERROR))         final EntryDialog dialog = new EntryDialog(e.project)         Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title 1', 'Description 1', NotificationType.ERROR)) }

It's a groovy class. The first 3 notifications before the works. But for the last notification balloon doesn't show up, though I get the event logs. The EntryDialog extends DialogWrapper and has just 2 text fields.

I just found out the work around while typing this post :). If I run on another thread, then the balloon shows up.

ApplicationManager.getApplication().executeOnPooledThread(new Runnable() {             @Override             public void run() {                 Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title 1', 'Description 1', NotificationType.ERROR))             } })

Can anyone tell me what's wrong ? What's wrong with the main thread, where am I going wrong ?

I am using Windows 7
IntelliJ iDEA 13.0.2 CE

If EntryDialog is modal dialog (or DialowWrapper, it means the same), your next line

Notifications.Bus.notify(new Notification(GROUP_NOTIFICATION_ID, 'Title 1', 'Description 1', NotificationType.ERROR))

will be executed only afrer dialog disposing.
There is essential documentation about modality:

But, even after the dialog is disposed, I am not getting the popup... But I am getting the "Event Logs".
Currently, during such situations, I am showing the Notification popup in a separate thread.

Also you can try to call notification within SwingUtilities.invokeLater()
It's just another workaround, maybe misbehavior you've described is really caused by our bug.

Same issue here. Any idea how to fix it?
