It's because right-click on my system is setup to popup the root-menu, maybe 
unbinding the right-button will do the trick.

You're basically right, but I thought it would be usefull for window-matcher, 
eg: KDE doesn't save resized dimensions for the fortune plasmoid (it's always 
at default size after startup). Also it would solve the above right-click

Mine is enter-exit, I'll try with different options and report it.

You know that issue we had with OpenOffice, too: When warp-cursor is enabled and 
the cursor inside the transient of a KDE4-Application the following happens:

- focus transient: everything fine
- try moving the mouse out of the transient: doesn't work, as soon as the 
parent is focused, the transient is re-focused and thus the cursor warped back 
to the transient (it's therefore and endless loop), focusing any other window 
than the parent works correctly.

As I said it's been an issue with OpenOffice, too, but with LibreOffice 3.3.0 it's 
fixed (atleast I can't reproduce anymore).

It does here, but I can see the following: first click: pops up but immediately 
disappears, click again, the pop-up stays available and works as it should, 
but sometimes it's haunted by the focus-issues I mentioned above.

I'd put better KDE4 integration as a goal for future versions.
