Description Yogesh Marwaha 2011-08-21 11:05:49 UTC
Version:           4.7.0 (using KDE 4.7.0) 
OS:                Linux

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.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Have to maximised windows and close the inactive one using context menu of taskbar.

Actual Results:  
As above.

Expected Results:  
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.
Comment 2 Martin Flöser 2011-09-25 08:45:51 UTC
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.
