notify-send ignores timeout

In gnome-shell I tried executing:

notify-send --expire-time=1000 test
notify-send --expire-time=10 test
notify-send --expire-time=500 test
notify-send --expire-time=8000 test
notify-send --expire-time=-1 test
notify-send --expire-time=0 test

But regardless of the --expire-time option value, the notification will stay for a fix amount of time of appx. 5 seconds or until the user clicks on it.

Am I doing something wrong?

I checked in KDE too and that works as @ZenDark already mentioned. Can you file a bug in Gnome Bugzilla and post the link here for followup.

Under kde it just work... It seems to be a problem with gnome shell. Try:

notify-send --expire-time=1000 --hint=int:transient:1 test
