FWIW, I worked hard to narrow down the following bug and get it filed, as I'd consider it a 4.6.2 stabilization blocker here. But I didn't make it block anything as I figured that was for you gentoo/kde devs to decide. Still, getting a comment one way or the other on whether you guys at least see it and simply don't consider it a blocker would be nice. Clear-Text: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=364555 Secure: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=364555 kde-base/plasma-workspace-4.6.2 panel misplacement, regression from 4.6.1, libkdeinit4_plasma-desktop.so I filed the bug upstream as well (URL link in the above bug). It only affects "multiscreen" mode, so may not be considered a blocker for gentoo stabilization. But given that I've narrowed it down to the specific library file, and to the changes between 4.6.1 and 4.6.2, I'd think it'd be a relatively easy spot-and-patch, for someone familiar with the code, and not /too/ difficult even for someone who actually codes C++ even if they're not immediately familiar with the code. So hopefully it'll be easy enough to fix, even if simply to revert a commit between the two versions (I tried to find kde's sources web-view links in ordered to see what those commits might be, but they hid it well enough on kde.org that I couldn't find it, and as I don't really read C++...), and won't hold up stabilization much if at all. -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
