Yes, I've noticed similar effects (since a long time actually). But to me they are minor, and I didn't bother to report them as long as we do not even have manpower to work in *real* bugs and *real* deficiencies in functionality.

It used to be even more visible, if you happened to move the printer dialog window over the Konqueror main window before clicking "Print".

At least the Konqueror main window always got properly re-painted after the preview is closed.

However, I do no longer see it on my SUSE-10.0 system with KDE 3.5.5.

Nor on any other recent system with KDE 3.5.x (Sidux/Debian unstable/KDE-3.5.5, Knoppix 5.1.1 Live CD/KDE-3.5.5, GoboLinux 013 Live CD/KDE 3.5.3 ).

It could even be a bug in your X server, or the graphic card driver (esp. since you say you see this effect on SUSE 3.5.5, while I don't see it with the same distro....). Which ones do you use? Are you running Compiz, Beryl or AIGLX? Which is your graphic card?

In any case, I'm 99.9% sure this is not anything that could have been solved from the KDEPrint side of the affair. If any, it is the Konqueror (or more general: the printing application side) that needs to make sure parts of its window is repainted after the print dialog had covered them. I don't know how "difficult" that is, though... 


(confirming bug, setting priority to low; I'll ask around on IRC to find out if other people with KDE 3.5.5 are also still seeing this)
