Well, I haven't seen something like that or anything of the rest of your 
description of the problem. But maybe it is related to desktop effects 
which are disabled here. You may check if the problem persists after 
disabling desktop effects: "K-menu" -> "Desktop" -> "Desktop Effects" -> 
"[ ] Enable desktop effects".

I think "title bar" is the proper name for it.

Depends on the contents of the notice - if someone asks for further 
information, you should surely respond with the additional info but if 
it is a status change like "Status: Confirmed => Triaged" there is no 
action required on your side.

Yes, someone is working on the bug, but usually it is solved only if the 
status is changed to "Fix Released".
