Description benni 2010-08-30 17:24:38 UTC
Version:           4.5 (using KDE 4.5.0) 
OS:                Linux

Fairly simple:
Press Ctrl + F8 (shortcut for desktop grid) and keep it pressed. You can see the grid and desktop changing very fast, and after 1-2 seconds KWin crashes. Short before it crashes you can see a part of the desktop grid effect over your current open application.
I know that this isn't the typical behaviour of a user that wants to use the effect, but it's ugly if that happens.

A (hopefully simple) solution would be if a timer controls the animation and allows to enable/disable desktop grid first after the animation has ended.

Here's the crash info (maybe not useful, because i don't use debug flags):

Application: KWin (kwin), signal: Segmentation fault

From the description I assume it's a duplicate. Of course without a proper backtrace it's impossible to say...
