Freshly installed Slackware 14.0, KDE 4.8.5, stock kernel 3.2.29.
Graphic card is plain in-built Intel GM, nothing fancy.
I've been observing couple visual inconsistencies in some KDE apps since I installed Slackware 14.0. The drop down menu box won't randomly appear broken. See example of Kwrite app and the broken drop down menu :-
And this issue remains with most(all) of the apps.
Another issue is with default Audacious 3.3.1. While I set it up like the old good Winamp classic style as in player+equalizer+playlist all together and works fine. However when I click on the system tray icon to hide it and show it back, the player or playlist gets separated. It's minor but annoying. Please see the screenshots :-
Please note, I have experienced this same behavior with any of the themes, with or without Desktop effects enabled, with openGL or xrendr, I mean the glitch is there no matter what.
Anybody else has experienced the similar annoyance? Any help or suggestion would be highly appreciated.
PS: I'll be upgrading to AlienBOB's KDE 4.9.2 in some time to see if the issue is specifically with KDE 4.8.5 or something else.
