On an up to date Kubuntu precise, my notifications will only pop up after the second one. I'm using:

kdialog --title "foo" --passivepopup "bar"

The first one is shown in the system tray only – the dialog popups only appear after more invocations.

How to fix this?

If you're not widely distributing this, try coding it with yad instead of kdialog. yad has many great features including support for notify. It is being actively developed and supported. – Joe Apr 15 '13 at 19:38
I'll take a look at it, thanks! Still, I think that this should work out of the box with kdialog. – danlei Apr 15 '13 at 23:04
Yes, it sounds like it should work. My only point is that with yad, you have an active developer and community to talk to if it doesn't perform as desired. – Joe Apr 17 '13 at 9:19
