un-shade behaviour with KDE apps.

First off let me say thanks to the KDE development folks for a great
desktop environment and a lot of fine applications. I have used
WindowMaker for years but now find KDE irresistible. I am currently
running KDE 3.4.1 on FC4. I have noticed a couple of unexpected
behaviors while un-shading windows:
1) If a non-KDE app (xterm, firefox, etc.) is shaded and I un-shade it
the widow returns to the full pre-shaded size. This, to me, seems normal.
2) Some KDE apps (konsole 1.5.1, kwrite 4.4) behave exactly as the
non-KDE apps above.
3) When other KDE apps (Quanta plus [kdewebdev-3.4.1], kompare 3.4.1)
are unshaded the window returns with a much diminished height. In fact
the window un-rolls enough to show the top and bottoms borders, toolbars
and about three lines of text in the body.
4) If I select (activate) a shaded window either from the panel or the
Window List Menu the shaded receives focus but remains shaded. It would
be nice if there where a way for the window to both receive focus and
Thanks for your time,
