Bug Description

Kubuntu 12.04, Geforce 7300GT + Forceware 295.40

I'm using Desktop Grid with Present Windows, triggered by the right top screen corner. From time to time, the top panel disappears from other desktops (sometimes the shadow remains), remaining only on the first one. I must restart Kwin to make it reappear. It likely has something to do with the panel's disappearance upon activation of the Desktop Grid.

Even though It seemed completely random, I've found one step to replicate it: Sometimes it happen upon activation of KRunner while on other desktops (this might also apply to the primary desktop, but I'm yet to find it).
