Version: (using KDE 4.3.3)
Installed from: Archlinux Packages
1. Set "Effect for desktop switching" to "Slide"
2. Set "Titlebar wheel event" (in "Actions") to "Move to Previous/Next Desktop"
3. Scroll up/down on a window titlebar
It looks like the window disappears, and then slides in with the new virtual desktop. I think it would look better if the window stayed in the same place, with the other windows sliding out/in.
Seems like the Desktop Cube Animation has the same problem. Should I file a bug for it as well?

This is *not* a dupe of bug #185710 but essentially says
"effects: windows that are moved to another desktop should be treated as sticky windows"
could require an API extension, i've blocked moving windows in the generic effects plugin (so far not released version), but that doesn't cover scrolling.
will have a look for the effect =)

Still exists in KDE 4.13.3.
Animations in KDE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDHsHoOiPqs
And to compare in Compiz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVTppLvXnUc#t=271
Also, in Android dragging widget across desktops animation works the same way as in compiz.
In compiz and android animation makes you easily understand what happens - window is being moved from one workspace to the other. KDE animation is counter-intuitive - as window disappears first, and then moves in.
stock effect will unlikely change for kde4
operates as you expect on virtual desktop animations (if that helps you)
https://phabricator.kde.org/D9487 fixed this bug.
Also, FWIW, "the new" slide effect doesn't have such problems. (https://phabricator.kde.org/D9638)
