I just tested daily build (10th February), and I was able to reproduce all
task manager bugs mentioned in upstream bug report.

KDE bug 275469 was most hated bug on bugs.kde.org for months. There are
numerous threads on kubuntu and ubuntu forums where people complain about
this bug. So I think this should be top priority for fixing in precise.

The bug is fixed upstream. It is bug in Qt. There are 3 patches which are
fixing the bug. One can find them here:
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=275469 , comment #173. Please include
all 3 patches in precise. Launchpad bug report:

There is ppa with patched Qt: https://launchpad.net/~hrvojes/+archive/qt.
In oneiric I am using Qt from this ppa and I cannot reproduce these task
manager bugs any longer.

Thank you.
