I'm having problems with pinentry-qt4. After each usage/password entered
Alt+Tab in KDE can't switch windows, "No windows" shows instead. After
that I need to switch to another window by selecting it on Task manager bar.

Additional info:
* package versions:
pinentry 0.8.1-3
kdebase-lib 4.8.3-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Check Alt+Tab window list (there should be few)
2. Run in konsole: echo GETPIN | pinentry-qt4
3. Type whatever you like press 'Enter'
4. Press 'Alt+Tab' to check window list. Instead of current window list
"No windows" info appears.

It looks like Fedora has it fixed with a patch[1] they apply on their RPM. I recompiled the package with the patch applied and it looks like it's working fine.

I already reported that problem to gnupgp mailing list[2], but with no confirmation on the solution proposed. That's why I suggest to include the patch in Arch's package, instead of waiting for upstream fix.

This task depends upon

Which qt version did you try?

Tobias the patch has to be applied to the pinetry package, not qt
