Yes, such a problem, probably, almost all the kde users
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2012-06-18 10:05:40 EDT
Likely bug(s) related to customizing taskmanager settings, esp those related to grouping.  Let's watch the upstream bug for progress.

Was closed the window with the Konsole, which was under the window of the dolphin. The window of mozilla was superimposed on the kopete chat window

> does not occur imposition of windows with these settings

I compared your settings with mine (comment #1)

"Force row settings" on or off does not prevent the bug from occurring.

On the other hand, "Sorting: do not sort" seems to help.

I will keep it for a while to verify it. Unfortunately I do not like this setting, but I hope this information will help to localize the problem.

Let's track this upstream, thanks.

No, I was wrong.

This bug affects me too. I am using kde-workspace-4.10.5-3.fc18.x86_64.

I get around the problem by starting or stopping an application. Still, it is annoying.
