[opensuse-gnome] "Additional Multimedia Codecs Required" DoS attack
Hi guys,

I am wondering whether any of you also get hit by the "Additional
Multimedia Codecs Required" denial-of-service attack with GNOME on
Tumbleweed (and what to possibly do about it)?

In a nutshell, now and then, out of a sudden, without any trigger
that I could see

"Additional Multimedi Codecs Required"
"An application is requesting additional multimedia codecs"

shows up in the notification area. At a rate of two or perhaps
three per second.

Sometimes it goes away after a bit (in particular various attempts
and arbitrary mouse clicking?), sometimes <Alt><F2> "r" <Return>
helps.

Debugging this I guess it might be related to the following repeating
N times (in journalctl)?

Still, is there a way to set some rate limiting on the GNOME
notification side? (If not, might that be considered a useful
addition?)
