at least, i can confirm this behavior for KDE 3.4.3 @ ultraSPARC - there, the 
same happens.

It also happens when using kate and kdevelop. So, i guess that the error stems 
from the embedded KDE editor component which is used within kwrite, kate and 
kdevelop. However, i encountered (in kate/kdevelop) that if you open a second 
file within the same application, this 2nd one will be loaded and displayed 
correctly, and the gray canvas of the 1st file disappears and is replaced by 
the correct view.
