Bug Description

When opening many windows, at some point the text labels of *all* the taskbar items disappear. Only the icon is still displayed in the center with most of the button left completely empty. This makes it impossible to select the correct window when a single application has multiple windows open.

This worked correctly at least in KDE 3.5.

Hi there!

Thanks for reporting this bug! Your bug seems to be a problem with the KDE program itself, and not with our KDE packages. While we appreciate your issue, it would be better if it was tracked at https://bugs.kde.org, so that the KDE developers can deal with this speedily and have direct communication with you as the reporter for more effective debugging.

Thanks!

FWIW, someone from my team is working on rewriting the taskbar to be more awesome, so big improvements are ahead :)
