I object. This is very useful for slow (or even hanging) connections.
It is not useful for fast connections, but the fix for that is to only show 
notifications for jobs that last more than 0.5 second. This is what the "old" 
dialog-based notifications did (*), and the bug here is that the plasma 
notifications don't do that. They should delay the addition of jobs by 0.5 
second and forget about them if they were completed meanwhile.

(*) kdeui/jobs/kwidgetjobtracker.cpp says: 
  QTimer::singleShot(500, this, SLOT(_k_showProgressWidget()));
