Complete interface, meaning:
- All running apps, e.g. I can no longer changes tabs in rekonq, switch to a 
different mail in kmail, switch from kmail to akregator in kontakt

- KWin effects, e.g. cube animation for desktop switch hangs in the middle of 
the effect

- Text input into e.g. kwrite. Since I am mostly using kde software, I am not
