Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Both kde-4.11.0 and kde-4.11.1 have had some bugs. Plasma is buggy in both versions. 4.11.1 had a double click taskbar bug (that was fixed in the latest git of kde-runtime)... so they've been playing with input code.
Sorry, I didn't know that. It was KDE 4.10.5 / kwin 4.10.5. And I repeat it was the "Fri Sep 20 00:38:57 UTC 2013" snapshot of slackware-current lest someone jumping directly to here missed the information in the original post.
It was not slackware64-current.

I think the ChangeLog gives more information than if I list all my software versions because the change on that specific date mentioned above narrows the problem down to very few packages.
Now cannot type anything in konsole but mouse works.
Switch to any other window, or switch to another tab in the same konsole, then switch back, keyboard works again
I am sure I got this problem after the "Fri Sep 20 00:38:57 UTC 2013" update but I didn't keep a snapshot of slackware-current before that. So I cannot fix it by reverting the changes by the "Fri Sep 20 00:38:57 UTC 2013" update.
Another way to reproduce it is to receive a message from skype (skype then pops up a message window in the lower-right corner of the screen). Then after the message disappears, I lose keyboard input to my foreground Qt window.
Mouse input works perfectly fine at the same time. Only keyboard input is lost.
if [ -x /usr/bin/scim ]; then
/usr/bin/scim -d &
if [ -x /usr/bin/scim ]; then
(sleep 30; /usr/bin/scim -d) &
Until now this problem did not appear again. Looks like starting scim too early when KDE is restoring last session causes problems.
This workaround is too ugly, and the problem did not appear until the X updates on 20.Sep.2013, so I will not mark this thread as solved at present.
EDIT: No. The problem re-appeared after some time.
