weird window in the corner

go easy on my guys/gals, i should come with a warning label (that's how new i am). after messin around with everything and anything just to get to know linux and kde better, apparently i've clicked on something that i shouldn't have... i've included a picture of the anomaly: it's a message window in the top left of the screen. it pops up any time i start a program, switch between programs, move a window, etc. any guidance would be much appreciated.

EDIT: i can't post URL's since i haven't posted enough, so i've included the link to the screen shot in my sig

hhmm, kind of Odd since KDE is a desktop environment and not a window manager...........
here are results from a google search I did, some links pertain to SuSe- you might look thru a few more pages and read up a little...........

You'll find some technical stuff about this at;

I think you'll have to go the kde forums to find a way of getting around this.

freakyg - with the link you gave me, that'd be like looking for a piston ring part number for a '56 chevy small-block by typing in "car" ie. not very helpful at all... i've been through what seems all the search criteria i can think of and have come up empty handed. i thank you for your efforts.

TigerOC - thanx, i'll try the KDE forums
