KDElibs: KSystemTray: On window close dialog

Yes I'm back :-)
As usualy, I'm always waiting the last minute to do things.
Since freeze is soon, it's time to hurry up me :-/

So, I've worked to:
- Get the dialog don't show if there isn't any systray area
  or it is hidden.
- But before try to show/raise this area.

Sources are joined.

I'm facing one problem: if the kicker is under other windows I'm trying
to raise it, wait 1 second for a refresh, take the screenshot and then
show the message box.
But the raising is done JUST AFTER the message box is shown!
Even if I insert kapp->processEvents(), wait, use all the available KWin
methods... It does nothing.

Is anyone has an idea of what is the problem?
It's on point 4. in the code.
Also, kapp->widgetAt() seems to don't work on systray.

I will also look at how to add a "warning" color to KDE colorsheme.

Best regards,

Sébastien Laoût.

	*  - Sometimes the systray icon is coever (a passive popup...)
	*    Use XComposite extension, if available, to get the kicker pixmap.
	*  - Perhapse desaturate the area around the proper SysTray icon,
	*    helping bring it into sharper focus. Or draw the cicle with XOR
	*    brush.
	*  - Perhapse add the icon in the text (eg. "... in the
	*    system tray ([icon])."). Add some clutter to the dialog.
