No, this is an xorg problem, not KDE's.

Please, remember that this list is not the place to discuss if something is a 
bug or a feature. Not because we couldn't, but just because if it is a bug it 
would not get fixed here :-)

Try de kde.org list or file a bug in bugs.kde.org

Once again, ask in a kde.org list or file a bug in bugs.kde.org. We can't do a 
thing about this.

If so, stay with Lenny. Else, be prepared for this kind of behaviours.
