Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

With kde running on local station:

1. perform xhost +

2. telnet into another station, export DISPLAY to the local station.
Lauch an application with GUI.

3. the GUI shows up on the local station.  Select the GUI, and something
which would spawn another window.

4. the new window would not show up on the local station, the cursor
still moves with the mouse, but we cannot select anything.  The local
display is virtually out of action until the process is killed on the
remote station.  The content of the window would still be updated
correctly though.

The problem only happens after running startkde.   It does not happen if
we run xinit, kwin and then plasma-desktop.  I am not sure what exactly
in startkde caused that.

I am running the karmic stream with the latest updates.
