Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kicker

Ugly squares system tray.

Since I have been using kubuntu intrepid alpha 6, I noticed that my
systemtray icons are surrounded by ugly squares (screenshot attached).
Sometimes the icons fall away completely, showing squares with my
wallpaper through it. It looks like a transparancy problem to me.

Kicker falling away partly.

Sometimes when I use GTK applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird or
when I use openoffice programs different parts of kicker are falling
away, showing my wallpaper only. This happens frequently and randomly to
the clock, systemtray, windowswitcher and the taskmanager. Sometimes
even my whole wallpaper falls away showing a black screen only until I
minimize or close the application.

Inverted kickoff colors.

When using the same applications my kickoff is sometimes displaying
inverted colors.

I am working on a Acer Aspire 9302AWSMi Laptop, AMD 64 processor, Nvidia
GeForce Go 6100 videocard. The problems happend both in Kubuntu Intrepid
Alpha 5 and Alpha 6.

Unfortunatly I was not able to make more screenshots of the inverted
colors and kicker falling away. I hope these problems can be fixed. I
always used Gnome before, but I love the new KDE 4.1 and really want to
use it for a longer time, but I will be forced to go back to Gnome when
these problems continue.
