I get the outline above the tabbox (bug #298487) but not the highlighted window.
With or without compositing?

Yeah that is with OpenGL and outline disabled.
Comment 3 Thomas Lübking 2012-05-03 21:31:48 UTC
Yeah, ok - bigger problem(?)
KWindowSystem::compositingActive() is invalidly false here ... (kdelibs is vanilla 4.8.2 from arch)
