Check behaviour of Compiz Fusion KDE 0.6.2-3.1
I am trying out the release "Compiz Fusion KDE 0.6.2-3.1" on my openSUSE system.
I would like to share some more experiences about its usability.
1. Context menu by title bar
1.1 The context/actions menu that appears after a right click on the window

desktop (even no panel-hiding button). I expect that it should stay accesible on
all my desktops on the top.
4.3 If I return to the first desktop by scrolling with the mouse wheel, the
button number is resetted to the value that was specified by the setting "Number
