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, 
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.
