Description of problem:
For some reason, at some point windows on the desktop become
unmoveable. That is, they cannot be dragged via the mouse. When
attempting to do so, the mouse cursor will change, but moving the
mouse around has no effect on the selected window. This is true for
existing windows as well as new ones spawned from the taskbar.
Using the "Move Window" keyboard shortcut also does nothing.
Desktop icons, however, are moveable when this problem manifests itself.
My best guess is that this happens when the desktop has been running
for an extended period of time - I will typically be logged in on the
same desktop session for months at a time. So far I have not found
any way to fix this aside from logging out and back in.
My primary applications are kterm windows, emacs, and mozilla.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up KDE
2. Let it run for a real long time? I don't know what happens to hose
3. At some point, windows become undraggable.
My machine runs since 2 months without this problem. Sorry, it's not
reproduceable here. If you have exactly instructions how i can
reproduce this problem, please reopen it again. Thanks
