interestingly, i stumbled upon what may be a related but just today: if a 
combobox is open and another window gets focus, then all widget focus seems 
to be lost. i could switch between desktops using the keyboard shortcuts, but 
that's about it. i had to switch to console and kill the offending 
application and eventually kwin came back to life.

i accomplished this state of affairs by hitting the key combo to launch 
konsole and then started typing into a combobox that caused the 
autocompletions to show... i had unfortunate split second timing, it seems, 
but it is possible to do...
