I think this problem has three problems at least.
1) as the summary says, the status window appears under the bottom of
the panel menu on KDE.
2) the status window has been decorated.
3) the status window appears on the tasklist.
We have already had a bug like 1) as Bug#118114. so the it should be
marked as DUPLICATED. but we doesn't have the bugs yet for 2) and 3)
so I'm retitling this bug for 2) and 3). and I think 2) and 3) should
be fixed for FC2.
Should be fixed in 1:11.4-41
The decorations are gone in -41, but status windows still appear
in the kde taskbar.
I couldn't reproduce that. have you restarted htt and httx?

This is what it looks like when user logs into KDE with ja locale
Test Outcome for new patch.
The Status Window on the Taskbar does not appear during the initial
log in. However, running an application say kedit and minimise it
causes the Status Window on the Taskbar to reappear. Also, the
workplace switcher is still not working.
1) No Status Window on the Taskbar.
2) Workplace switcher work as normal
If you kill httx and start httx again, this problem will be resolved.
However, this alternative leaves the status window of an application
open in the middle of the screen when the application is minimised.
Very ugly. Also, this alternative also allow the workplace switcher to
did the status window appears with just minimizing the application
window? and actually you didn't see the status window on the desktop
1. create a new user
2. log into the KDE with ja_JP.UTF-8
3. run kedit from the menu
4. minimized the window
But I couldn't reproduce that problem. do you have any steps to 100%
reproduce that problem?
I have tested your latest im-sdk -08 (orochi.tokyo) on FC2 and
everything looks very good. :)
The problem could be due to the different qt version on FC2 and
FC2 is using qt-3.3.2-2
RHEL4-alpha3 is using qt-3.3.2-5
In the ja locale, this situation does not appear anymore but in the
zh_*, problem still exist. According to tagoh-san, it is because
iiimf-le-xcin and iiimf-le-inpinyin does not have hiding the status
Will file a bug against each of them.
as Bug#126405 and Bug#126406 was closed, this problem should
disappears anymore. Lawrence, could you confirm if this problem was
fixed? we can close this then.
need the confirmation
Tested against version -46.svn1587 against zh_*, ja_JP and ko_KR
locale. Problem of status window no longer exist.
Great work tagoh-san.
