I have two problems with it: On my right monitor, placement of windows is 
completely broken - they either go to top left or lower left corner. On 
my left screen there is only the problem that kwin won't place and 
maximize windows to the area kicker occupies on the other screen, and I 
understand that's a limitation in the WM specs.

Other than this, it works fine for me.
