If the fade desktop effect is enabled the drop-down of a combo box appears for a
moment and disappears. The shadow of the list is visible and when clicked on the
shadow the content of the widget changes, therefore the widged is there, but is

When I disabled the fade option the drop-down list behaved as it should.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable the fade desktop effect
2. Click on some combo box in some KDE4 application (eg. zoom in Okular or
address bar in Konqueror)

Actual Results:
The expected drop-down list shows for a moment and then disappears leaving only
a shadow (I have the shadow effect on) under the invisible widget.

Expected Results:
The drop down-list should be visible.
