So basically its gnome users without any desktop effects that are seeing
the change. Everybody else(including me, a KDE user) can suck it up
until their VM supports the window hints as expected by GTK+/GIMP. Which
with KDE 3.x not being developed any more and KDE 4.1 being too raw is
an unknown time in the future for kwin.
P.S No, I'm not whining, just correcting an inaccuracy.
P.S.S No, changing a DE is not a solution.
