Description Amir Adar 2017-11-03 09:04:16 UTC
To reproduce:

1. Go to Settings > Configure Krita... > General > Window, and make sure that Multiple Document Mode is set to Subwindows.
2. Create a new document.
3. Draw something on the document so as to have an asterisk (*) show on the main window titlebar to indicate unsaved changes.
4. Maximize, unmaximize, minimize or restore the subwindow.

Expected result: as long as the document is in focus, the asterisk should be displayed in the titlebar until the file is saved.

Actual result: The asterisk disappears when changing the subwindow's status. It only comes back when switching focus away from and back to the subwindow (with another file or with another application).

Fix handling of modified markers in subwindow mode

The * marker for modified documents disappeared because subwindows
weren't set using kmainwindow's setCaption method that added the [*]

Now those methods are gone, and we set the placeholder in
KisMainWindow's updateCaption method.
