Description Jasper 2007-08-22 14:45:49 UTC
Version:           4:3.5.6-ubuntu6 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Unlisted Binary Package
OS:                Linux

This bug is really a case of flawed functionality rather than something actually being broken. It's easiest to explain with the following scenario:

1. Minimize all windows so that desktop is visible.
2. Display all notes with Alt-Shift-S. (This works fine.)
3. Maximize another application window. This will hide the notes behind this app's window, which is expected behavior.
4. Hit Alt-Shift-S to display all notes again. Nothing happens: the notes do not become visible.

Insert step 3.5: Hit Alt-Shift-H to hide all notes (even though they're already hidden behind the other app's window), then proceed with Step 4. Now the notes are brought into the foreground.

IMHO this is a bug as it's only normal for a user to expect all notes to become visible whenever Alt-Shift-S is used. I haven't looked at the code, but I suspect it incorrectly ignores the Alt-Shift-S if the note windows aren't minimized. The code should also check whether they're in the foreground.
