Default Task manager thumbnail popup delay (after 4.7 upgrade)

Hello guys,

since I upgraded my wheezy desktop to KDE 4.7, the popups with window
thumbnail get displayed immediately when I move mouse pointer over task
manager entries. With KDE 4.6, there was one or two second delay.

This is quite distracting when I want to interact with some application widget
near the taskbar and I "overshoot" the move accidentally, which results in the
thumbnail popup to appear, and block the widget until I move the pointer away
and wait a second or two for the popup to disappear.

In task manager settings, I only found a checkbox whether or not to display
popups, but no delay. Is there some other place I missed?

Thanks,
--
Andrej

Ah, good spot. I wondered why I hit those popups accidentally so often
since some time.

I have no idea. I also only see the option to disable them.

I think this would be worth a bug report at https://bugs.kde.org, if not
already done.

Ciao,

I'm kind of hesitant of logging a bug there, since they are already on 4.8
which might have this (and few other nasties which started after upgrade from
4.6) fixed, while debian plods along one minor release behind.

Ya, it's kind of sad that KDE doesn't fix bugs but instead moves onto a new
release... I hope Debian can find enough C++/QT/KDE talent to fix one of their
releases up to a higher standard.

You're still quite lucky. For me the popup doesn't disappear automatically in
about 50% of the cases. Have to move the cursor back and forth and wait a few
seconds in-between to see if the popup will finally disappear.
