That has been noted before, and possibly a bug filed.  I notice it but
like the feature and will probably setup a kwin special window config for
it to do that after the feature is removed (assuming it is).  However, I
have dual 1600x1200 21" monitors, so if I need to, I just move it out of
the way.  Not all folks could do that.

I do expect it's seriously annoying for some, tho, and have actually been
expecting the "feature" to disappear, despite the fact that it works well
