Empty notifications waking up the screen continuously

Hi all,

Ever since I started using sailfish os on my xa2, i’ve noticed that every so often, an empty notification pops up. That is, a notification bubble with no text in it. It disappears after 5 seconds, and tapping on it does nothing.

When the screen is locked, this wakes up the screen every so many minutes. So not only is it slightly silly, it is also wasting battery power.

I had a look the logs from journalctl and it seems to be this:

So before I go and dig into source code etc… does this look familiar to anyone? What could this be and how to make it stop?
