I too have experienced difficult to reproduce focus problems. Mainly cause of
multiple, and I do mean multiple Windows -or- Widgets open. Have my xinitrc
configured to open two terminal Windows right from boot-up. Have them open ALL
the time. In addition I can have one or more root terminal Windows open. In
addition I almost always have VMware running with Windows 2k -or- Vista. In
addition there will be multiple Firefox Widgets opened. Oh and probably
Thunderbird.  Now with this menagerie I can "loose focus" on one or more. They
will go transparent and not come back. Also just recently "lost" the Task Bar,
or Panel. Only had the two terminal Windows and One Firefox and one Thunderbird
open. I wanted to check the date and hovering over the time did not show it.
Clicked on the time and nothing. Moved cursor over the panel ... nothing. The
task bar stayed showing but nothing could be done with it. Right clicked on
desktop, got menu, re-started machine. On the re-boot ... again I could not get
any action from the task bar. Went to my Home Page and clicked on a couple of
items which caused more windows to be opened. Also clicked on the cashew in
upper right corner -but- did nothing. Just looked and closed it. Viewed a few
more things including this KDE4 area and all of a sudden I had control back on
the Task Bar..?.? For a time period, it was only a decoration at the bottom of
my screen. Now it is working again.
   In addition, I have moved my mouse to the Task Bar, over a windows grouping
and had the selections 'pop' up above the task bar. I would click on one for
selection and it would get focus -but- the pop up would not go away until I
clicked on the main selection in the task bar. This is also inconsistent.
KDE4 version: 4.3.81 (KDE 4.3.81 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091204)) "release 2"
System: dual core 3.2Ghz, 4GB RAM, 600GB HD, Two DVD's, GeForce 7300 LE and a
whole bunch of other stuff. It's an HP m7480n.
