That has got to be what is going on. In kde3 I have the option, but usually
just used fusion-icon and the pager worked fine. In openSuSE kde 4.3 (2.9.0)
compiz 7.8, I can't find that setting in system settings at all and the pager
is just stuck. In Archlinux with kde 4.3 (2.9.1) compiz 8.2, after plasma
crashed and restarted, every thing was fine.
I'll keep poking around and see if I can sort it out on openSuSE. I'll fiddle
with enabling/disabling compositing in desktop effects and see what
