Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
After upgrading to KDE 3.5.7 the option "Block global shortcuts" in KWin doesn't block alt + mouse to move a window anymore. It has done this in previous versions of KDE.
I don't know if this is wanted behavior but I thought I should file a bug report. If it is indeed expected behavior then could it be made into an option rather than to force it either way?
This bug has forced me to downgrade to KDE 3.5.5 so that I can get the behavior I expect.
SVN commit 703895 by lunakl:
No idea why I removed this in r603293.
