FWIW, current kmix in master works so much better than what is in the KDE/4.11 
branch it is not even funny. Great work on getting it to this point .. and I 
fully support Herald’s request (though it is obviously not up to me to grant 
any exceptions here)

It is far too trivial to have the KMix UI freeze or stutter (up-and-down,up-
and-down...) though the version in master appears to have addressed all these 
issues and it is super smooth for me now on a machine on which I could trigger 
these issues practically at will.

Herald is correct, imho, that this is the kind of bug that really hurts our 
reputation if left in.
