Description Andrei ILIE 2010-04-22 16:26:50 UTC
Version:           4.3.5-18.9 (using KDE 4.3.5)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

   Selecting "only show tasks from the current desktop" in Task Manager works as expected until the kwin's "desktop grid effect" is used.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

   1. select "only show tasks from the current desktop" in Task Manager
   2. use kwin's "desktop grid effect"

Actual Results:  

   Activating "desktop grid effect" shows, let's say, a grid of 4 desktops. There, if we look just at the current desktop's taskbar we see only the windows in that desktop - all good so far. The problem is that the taskbars of the other 3 desktops show the same apps that live in the current desktop.

Expected Results:  

   In "desktop grid effect", every taskbar presented should respect the "only show tasks from the current desktop" option.

   That is, when "only show tasks from the current desktop" option gets activated, every taskbar showed in "desktop grid effect" should only contain the applications associated with that desktop:

   taskbar 1 - desktop 1
   taskbar 2 - desktop 2
   taskbar n - desktop n

there's only one panel, thus one taskbar. it's just painted on every desktop (kind of "sticky" behaviour) and the taskbar content is updated when the desktop changes

(i think this is a dupe, but could not find the other bug)
