I too have the problem - and whats more, it only happens on one machine and 
not the other.  I am convinced it first occurred when I installed the 
fontconfig package - and although removing the package varies the behaviour, 
I can't get it to go back like it was.  I suspect it has something to do with 
upgrading to libxft2 - but what I don't know.

I used qt designer to write a test program to see if that was the problem, but 
I can't get my test programme to reproduce the problem.  I am slowing working 
up to build a complete chrooted test environment and then to compile kde from 
scratch and put debug on.

I have also reported it as a bug at bugs.kde.org 


- - but have had no feedback that anyone else has the problem.  I posted here 
asking someone to check things but noone did.  There is a screen dump of the 
problem which I attached to the bug report - it can be found here
