When I tried to move the elements around (playlist, context, collection) they dis-attached from the amarok window and now are overlapping each other and cannot be reset to be in the correct window.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. grab pane
2. move pane - and then it detaches from the window and cannot be reattached
Amarok looks strange and I cannot configure the look
it should be possible to move around the items and then to fix them again. There should be a way to reset everything to default.

Sorry, I tested with different environement with the provided environment of this bug.
Not a problem in version 2.6

Kyle, IIRC you are currently testing with the git version in Linux, so please, this is a bug about Windows, not about Linux.
Also please read the instructions in the task about how to comment on bugs you check, namely specifying the exact git version (run 'git describe' in the source folder).
To all other subscribers: it would be really helpful if somebody could test with the Windows version of Amarok 2.6
Ok. I've tested this in Windows 8 (with amarok 2.6)
If you move the pane and drop the pane when a highlight is shown, the pane doesn't go messy.
However, if you do that before the area is highlighted / or at the other region, the pane goes messy and becomes not recoverable.

Thank you very much for testing!

Restoring %APPDATA%\.kde\share\config\amarokrc from a backup fixed this for me. Specifically the following section seems to be responsible:
"messed up" layout:
Using the german version 2.5.0 on Windows 7 (installed via KDE 4.8.0 for Windows), sometimes while starting Amarok the "messed up" context pane has window decorations with the title "&Kontext". However once Amarok becomes responsive (i.e. no longer "(not responding)"), these window decorations disappear and the pane can no longer be moved.
On my machine, this is the case for the other two panes as well. They always stay at a fixed position relative to the screen and always in foreground w.r.t. the rest of the main Amarok window, but minimize along with it.
