Version: 4.7.0 (using KDE 4.7.0)
When I close a non-active window (using context menu in taskbar), it is first made active and then closed. As a result, if the application was maximised, it looks like the whole desktop has flickered. Closing the window while keeping it inactive should be ok.
Steps to Reproduce:
Have to maximised windows and close the inactive one using context menu of taskbar.
Window should have been closed while remaining inactive.
it's not activated but only elevated (that's an effect thing)
cuplrit here is the fade effect.
nope, it's a general thing. The stacking order position is not copied to the deleted, and all deleted windows are rendered on top of the clients. But disabling fade would circumvent the bug.
