Description Erik 2009-12-12 22:02:40 UTC
When Alt+Tab is used to switch applications and then used very soon again, maybe before then new application has appeared, the keyboard is totally lost. It is necessary to close all applications with the mouse, log out, log in again, start all applications and open the documents. It has happened about twice per week since the forced migration from KDE3 to KDE4, which is far from ready for production use (this is one of many problems). (Once the mouse buttons were lost too, so the system had to be shut down with the power button. Luckily this triggered some shutdown function, so that the filesystems were not damaged.)

Does this still happen with current stable kde-4.3.5 or with kde-4.4.2?
