I don't know about you, but there's this hugely annoying behaviour of QDockWidgets. Since Krita 2 uses them, I tend to run into it a lot. The symptoms are simple: if you have a floating dock widget and Krita loses focus, the dock widget gets hidden.
Sounds like a rather silly annoyance, you might think. I'd agree with you, if not for the fact that I run into this all the time. Not only that, but I can actually provide a plausible scenario that would make using some configurations of KDE4/Krita2 impossible to work with.
