Pressing the keyboard shortcut for the system tray widget opens an empty popup

Bug #367829 reported by Alan Jenkins on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
KDE Base
Fix Released
kdebase (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Environment: Kubuntu 9.04 LiveCD
Package version: kdebase-plasma-4:4.2.2-0ubuntu4

At the moment, it is possible to assign a shortcut to the system tray widget, like you can with any other widget. (You have to carefully right click on the edge of the system tray to get it's settings dialog though, even in config mode).

When this shortcut is activated, an empty popup appears above the system tray. This serves no purpose and should be removed. (Either that or whatever is planned for this popup should be implemented :-).

Marking this as fix committed since a fix has been committed for KDE 4.3 upstream.

(And it's a cosmetic bug which does not cause crashes. And it requires a rather peculiar configuration. The fix reveals the purpose of the popup, but AFAIK the system tray is otherwise impossible to navigate using the keyboard, at least in 4.2.2).
