I haven't seen this particular symptom, but every once in awhile I do get 
a misbehaving window (tho I don't believe it's always konsole, maybe it 
hasn't been konsole at all, here), that can't be restored.  I don't have 
a taskbar configured at all, but while alt-tab will switch to it, the 
window doesn't actually appear.

Usually a kwin restart (running kwin --replace is the easiest way) will 
fix it, but one time recently that didn't work; neither did hiding and 
showing the window using wmctrl at the CLI.  IIRC I had to kill and 
restart the app, which was frustrating, as I didn't actually want to shut 
down the app at that point, but I couldn't figure out how else to get it 
to display.  (When I switched to it with alt-tab, I could get it to take 
input, as the alt-tab switcher display would show the results in its big 
thumbnail; I just couldn't get it to display normally.)

I'd guess it's the same bug, however, /probably/ with the compositor, as 
the window simply won't display even when active and taking input as can 
be seen in the alt-tab switching image.  It's definitely frustrating, 
I'll agree with you there!
