Useful data point - thanks. I am using a login manager (lightdm), which launches startxfce4. Perhaps there's something got messed up with that combination.
Perhaps. To be honest, I don't think lightdm is responsible for the issue either. (It hasn't been updated since March.) There's obviously *something* that changed recently that's causing this behavior. I'm not sure what - or how to fix. But there's some evidence this might get fixed on the XFCE side soon.
FYI, I just tested under sddm and I still see the same issue. For whatever reason, xfce4-notifyd does not get started in response to attempts to launch service 'org.freedesktop.Notifications':
