Description Lastique 2012-02-11 11:16:56 UTC
Version:           4.8.0 (using KDE 4.8.0) 
OS:                Linux

Among others I have the Fade effect enabled. When a window hidden behind other windows closes, it shows in the front and then immediately fades out.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start some application which opens a window and closes it after a while. Pretty much any application will do - in my case it's a software manager which opens a window showing package database refreshing progress.
2. Switch to another application that covers that window (e.g. a browser).
3. Wait until the covered window closes.

Actual Results:  
The covered window appears in front of the covering window and fades out.

Expected Results:  
The window should not be shown at all. It should close in background.

I have a nvidia video card with the latest proprietary drivers. The described behavior has been there for quite a few KDE releases, it's not new to 4.8.
