Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase

After upgrade to kde 3.5.5 this morning my desktop was not usable any
longer as the windows were flickering by switching the focus all the
time without any actions from me.

After switching Desktop -> Window Behaviour -> Focus policy from "Focus
strictly under mouse" to "Click to Focus" the problem disappered. Any
other setting there made the problem occur again.

I then found http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=391357
describing exactly this problem (not in the subject but in the contained
discussion). As far as I understand this made debian raising a 3.5.5a
version of kdebase which is said to resolve the problem.

My env:
Kubuntu Dapper
KDE 3.5.5
