Yes, of course.

It's not my first commit to kde-workspace and I always handled it like that, i.e. using my description as commit message and adding the BUG lines. (I'm actually using the kdelibs template for my git commits...) ;-)

Before, kvkbd didn't work at all (the text input widget lost focus as soon as you moved the mouse to the OSK) and xvkbd only works if you forced the focus to the text input widget via its "Focus" button (from which this patch was inspired actually ;-) ).
