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.
kde-base/plasma-workspace-4.6.2 panel misplacement, regression from 4.6.1,
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.
