[Konsole-devel] Bug#40156: Konsole icon changes during normal shell use

Package: konsole
Version: KDE 3.0.0 
Severity: normal
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
Compiler:          gcc 2.95.3
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

Start up konsole. Type an arbitrary letter and press "tab". If the shell finds more than one match it waits for another tab to offer complete list of possible commands.

Until tab is pressed again (or user presses any other key), the shell icon (black terminal with shell) in the konsole toolbar changes to a bell icon.

I am pretty sure there is a reason for this behaviour, but IMO it can be very distracting to the user, since he does not expect any visual feedback after pressing tab. When I see that bell flashing up, I find myself changing focus to the toolbar again and again.

This behaviour did not exist in KDE 2.2.x
