  1. KDE 4.1: two nasty bugs

    Using the newest packages for some days now, I realised two nasty bugs.

    1) KDE programms will not close properly but stay resident in the background
    until killed. Today a kmail message popped up, though kmail wasn't visually
    running anymore in plasma and I'm sure about having closed it before.
    I can't open the last session on logging in, as this brings back all not
    propperly closed apps. I can't say this happens to all apps, but it definitely
    happens way to often.

    2) Switching between programs with Alt+Tab or giving KWrite back its focus
    will remove selected text (Bug #494752). This is very annoying and got some of
    my locally developed software compile errors, though these are the lucky
    cases, as those are the ones I can still track.

    I bet both are hard to trace on other systems, so I am not too enthusiastic on
    reporting 1) (did so for 2) already). Just like to know, if other people live
    with the same problems and maybe can point me to already existing solutions.

    This should be solved in kdelibs5 4:4.1.0-2 version

    Thanks, I checked the wrong changelogs so I missed this one:

    Add 01_r840377_840379_unload_on_close.diff patch.
    Fixes a nasty bug which makes some KDE4 apps stay in memory when closed
    resulting into excessive memory usage after some time.

    Funny we chose the same adjective for denoting this bug. After two days I
    think I can say it's gone.

    Not completely. I often have kmail that stay in memory and continue checking mails (that's how I noticed something went wrong).

    Strangely, it happens when the session is "old enough".

    If I log on KDE 4.1, launch kmail and quit kmail, I can check that kmail is not running any more. But after a "certain time", if I launch kmail and quit kmail, it keeps running. Once the problem occurs, it's reproducible.

    Kmail thing is some kind of special. I usually use webmail but since I
    configured Kmail it runs in the background every time I use kopete. I don't
    see it in task manager (haven't checked ps) but I know it's checking mail as
    I get error dialogs when it cannot find server. Check this output when I run
    kopete:

    rap@neonlight:~$ kopete
    kopete(13791) Kopete::IdentityManager::load: Created identity "UHz4c9NERi"
    kopete(13791) KDBusServiceStarter::startServiceFor: starting
    "/usr/share/applications/kde4/KMail.desktop"
    kopete(13791) KDBusServiceStarter::findServiceFor: DBus service is available
    now, as "org.kde.kmail"


    Please, send me link if you report a bug.

    I noticed that the problem only occurs if I use the kmail tray icon; disabling it makes the problem vanish.

    As KDE 4.1.1 is being uploaded, I'll wait to see if the problem is still here before reporting the bug.
