Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.4.4)
If I separate dolphin information panel placing it aside of the dolphin master window, I can see the dolphin icon in the application tray in the kde panel (the one beside the kde menu where falls the opened applications), if I click on this icon, dolphin window and panel pops up, if I click again dolphin window doesn't iconify again, I have to click on the "\/" icon on the window bar to iconify it
Steps to Reproduce:
1)drag and drop information panel from the main window
2)click on the dolphin icon in the kde application tray
dolphin doesn't iconify
dolphin has to iconify
if you recouple the information panel it iconify again
Thanks for the report. I can reproduce the issue on 4.5 and trunk. It is unrelated to Dolphin itself and guess this must be fixed either in Plasma or KWin.
Confirmed in 4.7.4. I also checked Amarok, which seems to suffer from the same issue. So: Whenever an application is split in multiple mini-windows (or whatever you want to call them) and you click on the taskbar item, it does not minimize. I'd expect one of two possibilities:
1) All mini-windows controlled by the one icon
2) A taskbar item for every seperate mini-window

Pushed by aseigo into branch 'master'.
use KWindowInfo to check for transients; take more care with transients
it does a rather more thorough job and fixes the problem of utility
windows that are transients (e.g. toolboxes pulled out of app windows)
preventing windows from being minimized properly from the tasks widget
this is probably far older than the 2.5 year old bug report.
