ktip application feedback glitches

Description of problem:
When ktip is enabled for KDE logins, unless you click "Close" immediately
after login (before alarmd and klipper applets load), both "Autorun" in
the taskbar launch feedback and ktip lightbulb cursor application launch
feedback remains for a 30 second timeout. I suspect that this would also
be the case for other similar programs launched by KDE Autorun upon login.
This by itself is only a minor glitch, but it could be an indication of
potential other probems with the new application launch feedback feature.
These problems could be seriously confusing to less experienced users.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the box in ktip to enable tips at KDE login.
Both ktip lightbulb cursor ALF and "Autorun" taskbar feedback wont go away
until the 30 second timeout.
"Autorun" within the taskbar should disappear immediately after launching
This occurs similarly in both plain Roswell, and with the latest updates
as of August 13, 2001.
that's not a bug. Many users want this feature as default in KDE.
If you don't like it, just disable it in control Center->Lool & Feel->Launch
I believe you are misunderstanding me. I _like_ application feedback.
This is a case where application feedback is confusingly and consistently
misbehaving under a certain circumstance. Both I and another person on the
Roswell mailing list have reported this as such, but Bero said that he wasn't
able to reproduce it. I am nearly certain that Bero did not replicate all of
the conditions that cause this glitch.
This is clearly a bug where application feedback consistently does not detect
that it should end. After 30 seconds it times out.
I ask that Red Hat please reopen this as a bug. I see this every time I log
into KDE in Roswell with ktip enabled, and it is clearly a misbehavior of
Another note just in case this may be the cause of the misunderstanding:
ktip is "Kandalf's Tips"
Old and doesn't matter anymore...
