Ok. Possibly an easy update. I am using:
KDE4 version: 4.3.81 (KDE 4.3.81 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091204)) "release 2"
  and I have:
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.

I just recently had a number of Terminal Windows open and Firefox and
Thunderbird. I was bouncing back and forth between Thunderbird and Firefox via
HTML links included in e-mails. Viewing mpeg, YouTubes, mvm etc. I had
previously gotten an Update of SMPlayer and thought that might have been the
cure because I wasn't experiencing any problems.

Then I had to go over to Windows via my dual boot (cause shame on me I don't
have the Linux Printer set up yet). Anyway, upon coming back to Linux I was
looking at my screen and was thinking that I would like it to show a little
longer before going into the screen saver. Now then:
1. I had just re-booted ... leaving Windows XP ... Selecting Linux.
2. Linux comes up with sign-on screen... I sign-on.
3. My home Desktop comes up with 116683-hatterem 1024x768 background.
   (resembles the Northern Lights)
4. Also showing is my two terminals I start in xinitrc.
5. Because of the above mentioned decision, I minimized the two terminals and
then I right-clicked on the Desktop to get the settings. I had forgotten that
the screen saver is set via the Config Settings in the Launcher.
6. I closed the Desktop Menu that I had opened and then "attempted" to open the
Launcher. Nothing, nada, zip.  My task bar had become a decoration again. The
selection for this WebPage "Bug 189409 - Terminal" is high lighted in the task
bar and the rest are grayed out. 'IF' I select one of the other Windows by
clicking on the window the High Lighting of the Task bar with follow.
| Win-1 Hi-Lited   | Win-2 Greyed    | Win-3 Greyed   |
     I click on Win-2 itself NOT the task bar entry and 
| Win-1 Greyed     | Win-2 Hi-Lited  | Win-3 Greyed   |
-BUT- I can not click on anything on the task bar and get a response. I can not
hover over an item and get a thumbnail. Can not hover over the time and get the
Date.  Task Bar is nothing more than a Decoration ... at this point in time.

The "corrections" have come from opening and closing windows on the desktop.
After I finish this entry I will try to make a record of the sequences of
window openings and closings to get the correction and report the results in a
new comment.
