Well, this happens anyway at the moment, no?  

The issue is that the failure notification *does* pop up on the desktop that 
you are on, but does not follow you back to that application.

i.e. In the current example, let's say I fire up KMail on desktop 2 and go 
over to Konsole in desktop 1.  Then I decide to switch to 4, etc.  Well 
sometime during the switching a message box popped up -- unfortunately on a 
desktop that I haven't been back to since.  Now, to be able to use KMail, I 
likely have to first find that dialog and tell it to proceed.

I'm not sure you're talking about the same thing.
