Version: (using KDE 4.0.3)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
I started KDE without kwin effects. Opened some GTK applications (Firefox and GIMP). I work with photos and i want better orientation in opened photos, them i enabled desktop effects and all GTK windows disappeared. On taskbar i see this applications, when i hover over task i see preview, but windows aren't visible. Closing and starting GTK apps with enabled effects run fine.
Which driver, which compositing mode (opengl/xrender)?
SVN commit 817185 by lunakl:
Don't avoid windows that don't have contents yet ready for painting.
There is a bug somewhere in detecting it and there also should be
a protection against faulty clients.
