Yes, It's not KWin it's kwin.cpp patch to be exact ;)

Yes, that's my main concern (testing of that code) as there's not many 
people using KDE with a different WM than KWin. Fortunately KWin users 
won't suffer any inconveniences as the code path for them will remain 
the same. The only people affected by this patch will be the more 
advanced users who decided to use KDE but not KWin.


Last week, I left my 2 XP CD's on my dashboard in plain view.
Someone broke into my car and left 2 more.
