I installed by doing a rpm -F * on the directory containing the packages
I downloaded from

Fedora Core 1.

Not suse here but there where no conflicts anyway.

I've tried with a clean KDEHOME (removed it).

Haven't stumbled with any of these :/

Yes. Another handy thing would be something MacOSX has: exposé. With the
click of a button with can have a glance at all the windows on the
current desktop, smaller to fit the screen (all of them), and then you
can choose whichever you want and the desktop will be restored with that
one on top.

Well I'm using it prime time now. Although annoying I can ignore those
bugs for now.
