Screenshot of the bug: buttons on bottom are missing, size of contents is wrong

Version:           Git (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

Since KDE 4.8 Beta2 changes made in kdelibs break the amarok context view, which uses plasma. Please see the screenshot attached.  Downgrading kdelibs to 4.8 Beta2 solves this issue. 

I tried to bisect, but since kdelibs takes a while to compile here and KDEs webgit is down since yesterday, I didn't manage to find the exact commit breaking it. 

You might have to forward this bug to the correct project, even though the package causing it is kdelibs, you might want to add the plasma people. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
- Get kdelibs more recent than 4.8 Beta2 
- Start amarok

Actual Results:  
- The parts using plasma (context view) is broken, both regarding size and missing buttons.

Expected Results:  
External apps are not affected like this when plasma changes.

Qt is 4.7.4, System is gentoo linux on x86_64, the whole kde (kdelibs, base, plasma ...) is a current (yesterday) git/svn build. 

Thanks for investigating, please tell me if there is any further information I can provide.

Confirmed by users on IRC

Hmm, the same error happens in 4.7 branch after the 4.7.4 release:
 * 4.7.4 (as released, kdelibs devs didn't bother to upload a git tag:
http://www.mail-archive.com/release-team@kde.org/msg05261.html ): works okay
 * 8095c11d181 (on the 4.7 branch): the bug can be reproduced as described

This should hopefully shorten an interval for bisecting.

Duplicate of https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=290123, partially fixed. The size of the content is still wrong until resized, but at least the buttons are back. 

As soon as this is fixed as well: the only problem remaining: either the packagers have to patch this manually, or there should be a minor amarok release before 4.8 hits the shelves.

Having all 'on the edge' the size-problem is still alive and kickin'
Comment 5 mgolden 2012-01-12 18:40:22 UTC
Perhaps this is related: I am the reporter of bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=290123 When I first reported that bug, I was asked to delete all my amarok initialization files in .kde.  When I did that, I didn't see the issue reported in this bug.  However, a few days after that bug was resolved, I restored the files


and now I am seeing this as well.  As others have mentioned, the problem goes away when the application is resized.

Perhaps there is something in one of those files that is being misread.  Probably people who are doing a clean install/test are not seeing this.

From the screenshot from Fuchs, this is a duplicate of bug 292895. (or, the missing buttons is another already fixed bug)
