The notifications sent by wpkg.js are sent using "net send" or "msg" command
(depending on OS). To disable this use the /nonotify switch or set the
"nonotify" parameter to "true" in config.xml.

Maybe your WPKG client installations suppress the notifications using the
/nonotify command.

Note: For this to work Windows needs to run the "Messenger" service (except on
Vista/7 where msg.exe is used instead of "net send").
