haha, sorry.. i guess i need to be a little more specific. it shows the size of the window, for example, if you resize the window, that little box shows up in the middle showing the size... that thing comes up when ipress tab...

It doesn't do that here, I'm using Slackware 9.1 with KDE 3.1.4

Maybe you made a shortcut with the TAB key?

Strange... TAB, by itself, shouldn't be interpreted by
KDE in the first place, and specially not in that way.
The "size" info-box usually only comes up when
you're re-sizing a window.

Is the problem consistent? Like, over several logins?
Or has it just happened during one session?


Cheers,
Tink

it happens all the time, im using kde 3.2 and it also happens when im viewing a file in VIM and i hold the up arrow, when it gets to the top of the file, it will give a system beep, and it will also show the size... its weird, when i hold up, it looks like the 'skin' is flashing to some basic kde layout.. if that makes sence


another thing i just noticed is that if there is no text after the prompt, i press backspace, then the icon on the tab will go away, and it will system beep, and the size will show up, then when i press a letter, the icon will show up again, and the size will show up... i think it could be somehting with the window decorations im using... im using kde 3.2 with plastik window decorations
