No shadows for Superkaramba themes while using translucency/shadows in KDE?

I'm using the Composite X extension, and I've enabled "Translucency/Shadows" in the KDE Control Center. I've also got several Superkaramba themes on my desktop. I'm using KDE 3.5.1. I've got shadows on active and inactive windows, but apparently Superkaramba themes fall into these two categories. Is there a way to have shadows for windows and pop-ups, but not for the Superkaramba themes?

There was a bug introduced into 3.5.1 that causes this problem. You used to be able to run xcompmgr with the options -fF and the shadows would be gone previously. It will be fixed for 3.5.2.
