This was also fixed in the latest version I posted a week or so 
ago....  (It was a stupid goof that got out with version 4. I had 
accidentally used \[Placeholder] in the palette instead of 
\[SelectionPlaceholder]. )

Here was the blurb:

ANNOUNCING: A bug fix version of the Notation Package for unix
systems including linux.


(The particular fix you are interested in was listed under... several 
small fixes :) )
