When I start LibreOffice in my KDE it has no Window decorations (titlebar and stuff) - see the attached screenshot.
When I move the window, the decorations appear temporarily (until I release the mouse button).
I use QtCurve as the window decoration as well as the main theme and libreoffice-gnome to integrate LibeOffice to my desktop (libreoffice-kde looks ugly - but does not suffer from the missing window decorations).

Additional info:

* package version(s)
libreoffice-common 3.4.4-3
libreoffice-writer 3.4.4-3
libreoffice-gnome 3.4.4-3
qtcurve-gtk2 1.8.12-1
qtcurve-kde4 1.8.9-1
kdebase-workspace 4.7.3-3

Steps to reproduce:
1) Set the GTK+2 theme to QtCurve.
2) Install libreoffice and libreoffice-gnome.
3) Run libreoffice as: OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome libreoffice
This task depends upon

Please check with 3.5.1 in extra now. If it's still present look for upstream reports or report it there.

Problem still present with 3.5.1. I have found these two upstream bugs that seem to be the same:

They're marked as 'FIXED' but I am getting these glitches anyway.
I use QtCurve for both decoration and widget style.

This seems to be no LibO issue but rather a KDE problem. Andrea?

I have done some investigation and there are results:
1) Oxygen window decoration does NOT have this issue.
2) Smaragd decoration DOES have it.
3) QtCurve decoration has this issue, but if I use Xrender for compositing instead of OpenGl there is no problem (but the performace is poor).

How's LibO 3.5.3 ? If it's not solved please file a new upstream issue.
