Well, not much to go on here, but... can you provide a few more details?
What video hardware/driver are you using?
Are you enabling kwin compositing?
(I ask because this sounds more like an X issue atm).
I am using kwin compositing with an ati-radeon 9600se and radeon driver, this
never occurs when using gnome with the desktop effect enabled.
Afaict, kwin compositing does more than compiz (uses more hw accel, features).
OK, please report your findings upstream to bugs.kde.org. That's the best way
to get the needed info into the (upstream) devs to make a difference here.
the bug seems to be fixed after an update of the kde-workspace package. but to
be sure i will try to reproduce the bug during the next two days.
We didn't change anything in kdebase-workspace which would be likely to fix
this issue. Maybe it was an X11/driver upgrade which fixed it?
So is the bug fixed for you?
the bug is now fixed.
