I have been using Lenny for several weeks yet (with KDE 3.5).

For first two week all was Ok but then such a bug appeared:
1) In the KDE panel only one desktop available (but I have 4 desktops).
2) All windows I open have no border!

It sounds like your window manager, kwin, is dying spontaneously. Keep a terminal window open at all times, and when the bug occurs, type "pgrep kwin"; if nothing is listed, kwin has gone. However, you can start it up again from the terminal by typing "kwin &"

Thank you. Actually problem is in kwin. When KDE works good "pgrep kwin" outputs process IDs of loaded kwins, otherwise 'pgrep kwin' outputs nothing. After I run "kwin &" command KDE begins to work good (4 destops and border of the windows appears).

Nevertheless, I want to correct this bug on my machine so that kwin never dye. Prompt me, please, how to do this.

Must I report this bug? Where?
