Exclamation Restore a minimized window in KDE?

im using rh8/kde, and i probably did something i shouldnt have done... I minimized a window that dont go to the taskbar, so i have no idea how to restore it. Since it is minimized, i cannot use it, but worse of all is that its Kpackage, and now everytime i try to install a rpm, kpackager is hidden...
help me please, ive been trying to fix it for hours..

I don't know if ALT-TAB works in KDE but it might be worth a shot...

my guess is that alt+tab shows only the taskbar icons, since the 'hidden' programs are not in the list.

Open up a terminal and run ps -A,find the pid and kill it,then try restarting the program and see if it works.
