Karm in kdepim can do most of what you want.  

It can track at least when you are using a specific virtual desktop, which is 
how I use it to sort out what's billable time and what's not.  It takes a 
little discipline to keep projects apart (and don't forget to have a 'spare' 
one that's not attached to any project or client, for when you're just 
messing about, or idle, although it will back you out if you forget and leave 
the machine with a 'project' desktop focused)  Lots of reporting 
possibilities, subtasks, all sorts of useful things.
