Hi, my best suggestions:
1. cd ~/.kde/share/config
config:$ ls kwin*
kwincrystalrc  kwin.eventsrc  kwinmodernsysrc  kwinplastikrc  kwinrc  
kwin_rules_dialogrc  kwinrulesrc  kwin_update
Mess with those files. Get a feel for how they work, or just dump then all 
into another folder and restart KDE. It *should* reset itself to defaults.
2. Right click the title-bar of the windows you suffer from and choose 
advanced->special X settings, where X is windows or applications (I can never 
figure out the diffs). After that muck about with the settings in there.

No ideas here. 


Awash with unfocused desire, Everett twisted the lobe of his one remaining
ear and felt the presence of somebody else behind him, which caused terror
to push through his nervous system like a flash flood roaring down the
mid-fork of the Feather River before the completion of the Oroville Dam
in 1959.
