           Summary: Z-mode + Clean-up layout causes improper redraw
           Product: kst
           Version: 1.5.0
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: dwiebe physics utoronto ca

Version:           1.5.0 (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 
OS:                Linux

When looking at a plot in "Z-mode" (ie. the full-window mode you get when you key "Z" on a plot), the "Cleanup Layout" option available from the right-click menu causes an improper redraw of the kst window.

Steps to reproduce:

1. create some plots
2. maximise one plot to the whole window by keying "Z"
3. Right click -> Cleanup Layout -> Default Tile


The previously maximised plot is drawn in the location it would have been placed, had clean-up layout been used without Z-mode active.  The remainder of the window is never repainted subsequently, until Z-mode is undone by hitting "Z" again.

Expected Results:

While in Z-mode, clean-up layout should either do nothing, re-arrange the windows "in the background" (ie. so that when the user leaves Z-mode, the plots will be in their cleaned-up orientation, but leaving the window otherwise unchanged in the interrim), or else force an exit from Z-mode before doing the clean-up.
