I am experiencing something funny with the KDE4.1 plasma applets.... Sometimes, if a small window appears (such as the file transfer windows or the question boxes), they stay in the taskbar area even after they are closed or they disappeared... thats annoying because for example, at this moment, I have 2 "entries" from Mplayer (windows called Error!) and one file transfer entry that are stuck in the taskbar area. There is no way to get rid of them, only a logout/reboot will do the trick.. Right click on them and selecting "Close" does absolutely nothing... Somebody experienced something similar?
I posted this a long time ago, when I was on opensuse 10.3 and quite frankly, never really had a solution for this issue. Then I moved to slackware 12.2, with kde 3.5. Now on slack 13.1 with kde 4.4.3, this issue is gone. I believe this might have just been a bug on the older KDE releases.
