Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open konsole, kopete, else application with the "Configure Notifications" dialog
2. Open the dialog Settings/Configure Notifications
3. Repeat the previous step several times

More than one "Configure Notifications" dialogs should appear. The same with the "Configure Toolbars" dialogs.

These dialogs should be modal (like "Configure Shortcuts") or singleton (like "About KDE"). And (possibly) all these dialogs should behave equally: be modal or be singleton.

Hi there,
We are in the process of closing wishlist items that have already been reported at KDE. Don't worry, your issue still is being tracked at KDE's bug tracker at: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=191157 . It's just that Kubuntu currently does not have the manpower necessary to take this feature on ourselves. We will receive this functionality once KDE implements it in one of their releases.

Thanks for understanding, and have a nice day.

Here using:

Qt: 4.6.0 (Qt git branch 4.6 commit c5c58c2368f71c5d0067c9389c8ad04c41b66db5
        Date: Wed Sep 9 15:09:34 2009 +0200)
KDE: 4.3.72 (KDE 4.3.72 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091015))
kdelibs svn rev. 1037743 / kdebase svn rev. 1037743
on ArchLinux i686 - Kernel 2.6.30.6

I can confirm this bug with the "Configure Notifications" dialog, but not with the "Configure Toolbars". "Configure Shortcuts" seems to be modal so it doesn't cause the described behavior.
