Thanks for your detail explanation.  I really appreciate it.

Sorry.  gcin is the input method for Chinese.  It should just have an icon in 
the tray, and launch a window when need to input Chinese characters.

Going here, after detecting the window properties.  4.png is what I got for 
these two windows.

And, please take a look at 3.png.  you can see these two weird windows.
Inside the window is a transparent thing, just like a ghost.

If I close the window from the x mark in the upright corner, the whole 
application would be closed.  That is, gcin would be closed and re-launched 
again since it is the input method.  And if I close the plasma-desktop one, 
the whole plasma-desktop would be gone!!

Later some time, I may remove my .kde4 folder and start from the very 
beginning again.  However, last time I tried it, there is still one window.

Also, have I mentioned that I'm using Mandriva KDE 4.5 packages?
