Default FVWM Desktop scrolling not working with KDE open dialog box

I'm having a weird issue I'm hoping someone here can help with. I've
asked on the FVWM mailing list, but they can't reproduce with my config,
so I'm hoping someone here with experience with the KDE/QT side of
things might be able to offer a suggestion.

I've configured FVWM with a single 3x3 desktop, and I've left off edge
resistance so I can flip between them easily. This works fine most of
the time, but recently, I believe with updating KDE to 4.6.2, I've
noticed this problem. When I have a KDE app (or possibly any QT app,
I'm not sure where exactly the distinction lies; it happens with
SMplayer as well, which I don't believe is strictly a KDE app, but a QT
app) open and try to open a file (or save a new file), when the dialog
box its up, the mouse (and focus) is on that dialog box, and I try to
move my mouse up to the "upper" page, it flicks to the new page for a
split second and then puts me back on the page with the KDE/QT app. If,
while the dialog box is open, I let the mouse rest for a moment on the
application, the app gets focus for a split second, and then the dialog
seems to take it back. Then when I move the mouse off the top of the
page, it works fine.

It seems to only be limited to QT/KDE, but I have no idea if it's a
"bug" in FVWM, or a "feature" in KDE that needs disabling. Hope this
description makes sense. Does anyone have any ideas?

FVWM version is "fvwm 2.6.1 compiled on May 23 2011 at 18:40:17 with
support for: ReadLine, XPM, PNG, SVG, Shape, XShm, SM, XRender, XCursor,
XFT, NLS", and my config is attached.

Any thoughts?

I saw your question in the fvwm mailing list. If Thomas Adam couldn't
help there I don't think anyone here will be able to. But stay tuned,
just in case... I, like him, couldn't reproduce this. I've
occasionally used lots of kde applications with fvwm without this
problem.

Well, in my book, a kde app is an application that links against the
kde foundations (kdelibs), a qt-only app is an application that links
against any or many of the qt parts, but not against kdelibs. smplayer
seems to fall into the later category.

It could help if you were able to reproduce this with a minimal single
config file and try some more qt and kde programs.

I've tried it with SMplayer, Kdevelop, Kate, KMyMoney, and KolourPaint
and they all exhibit the same behaviour. Gnome and other X apps don't
exhibit the same behaviour, it seems limited to KDE apps.

I'll try to strip down a config and see if I can't find what option does
it. I think I might also move my .kde4 folder temporarily and see if it
still happens.

Thanks for the reply.

One quick thing you could try is to create a new user and try there,
if you don't want to mess up your kde config.
