I just got kde working under Gentoo 64 again, and I also installed bootsplash for the first time (which I'm quite proud of myself for, by the way), and ever since I've used it, my kde fonts are a little weird. here is a screenshot.
It just pops up randomly, although it's guarenteed to be on the Network folders and trash icons from the Konqueror main menu. Sometimes it's on the menus, and when I move my mouse over it it goes away. I don't mind it that much, but a) it's a bit annoying, and b) One of my friends who is a *cough* Windose user is going to be stopping by at some point this weekend, and this could be a negative in our own private Windose/Linux debate.
