Thanks Dove & Tassilo,

I actually got it to work by redefining the "show-notification"
function as follows:

(defun show-notification (notification)
"Show notification. Use notify-send."
(start-process "tea-time-notify-notification" nil "notify-send" "-i"
(expand-file-name "~/path/to/your/icon/YourIconName.png") "Emacs Tea
Timer" notification)
)

Tassilo - no, I'm still using 23.2.1, but I'll keep your suggestions
in mind for the future.

cheers,
  --Ben
