The "Show window list while switching windows" item is actually grayed out on
my system.  However, further down there was another option: "Popup desktop
name on desktop switch".  I unselected that item and presto... the popups are
gone!  :-)

Thanks very much to both of you for your help!

Frank, BTW, my system does not have the 'kcontrol' command.
