Steps to reproduce:
1. Enable Dim Inactive effect with e.g. option to also dim panels
2. Observe that panel is dimmed
3. Change configuration to not dim panel
Panel is no longer dimmed
Panel is still dimmed, when moving mouse over panel (e.g. tasks) the areas repaint undimmed, that is option has been applied.
How to solve the issue:
effects->addRepaintFull() needs to be added in the reconfigure() method
I managed to do that and published it to the review board:
I hope I've done everything the right way.
Somehow I coulnd't assign the bug to myself. So sorry if somebody did the same.
I'm looking forward to dig deeper into kwin and perhaps do some real work :)

cool :-) I'd recommend to look for the junior jobs or at the bugs marked with
the target milestone 4.10 - there are some really easy things there.
