Where is KDE/Kicker Transparency option

I'm using the new "real" transparency from the newer xorg version and kde 3.4 , and there is one slight annoyance. The kicker and dropdown menus are all slightly transparent, and in some cases this makes them hard to read. However, I have been unable to find a panel that controls this aspect. All I could find was the controls for the "fake" transparency. Does anyone know where this is located?

I don't think any of the major DEs use real tranparency at the moment.

3.4 added support for the COMPOSITE extension. It sure looks real, if it isn't, since I can see inactive windows through other windows.
