Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

Take for example the following google search:
http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage+extremely+long+title+webpage&meta=&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

This results in a browser window with an extremely long title (the same as the query). After this, when you try to alt-tab, KDE shows a poorly formatted switcher dialog: in which the extremely long title is shown and ALL the other window titles (browser or otherwise) are shifted to the right, rendering them invisible... probably to accomodate the long title.

I am not able to get a screenshot, because I dont think I can screenshot with alt-tab

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!
