xsnow and kde4

Just installed xsnow on my sisters Ubuntu pc and it runs ok, however it seems not to work properly with the desktop icons. When a snowflake falls over the icon it kind of cuts a jagged line through it. The icon is then restored when you hover over it.
Anyone any ideas?!

KDE4 have a native snow plugin, just go in desktop effects config to activate it.

Open a terminal and enter:
man xsnow
xsnow -h
and you will see that you can configure xsnows behavior.

I know I can configure the behaviour but I haven't found a way around this problem using the standard config options in the man page.

I'd be interested to know if there is a workaround anyway because having run it on mine, it seems to have a similar effect on conky. I am running fvwm2.
