Bug Description

Always on top apps cast border shadows on menus.

To reproduce:
Open any window and set it to "Keep above others". Now place it in such a way that its border lies on the KMenu area. Now click on the K-Menu and you will see the shadow of the window (see attachment)

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. But don't worry! This issue is being tracked by the KDE developers at:
Once fixed in KDE, it will be included in Kubuntu once the KDE version the fix is in in reaches Kubuntu.
