Hi Raster!
I'm just running Illume on my desktop box and I noted that this happens to
other application too, for example with Firefox, just now while answering to
this mail I'm seeing "Gmail [FSO] some ..." in the Illume bar next to the
left arrow, selecting File->Open File it brings up the file chooser dialogs
and the Illume bar shows "Open File", then clicking on "Cancel", the dialogs
disappears but Illume bar shows "Illume" and not again "Gmail [FSO] ..." as
I would expect! As this runs well if i Select Help->about I suppose it
happens only with some kind of window.

It works now with Illume on my desktop box, it may be related to an older
version of Illume I had on the freerunner some days ago. I'll report if the
problem with the latest FSO image persists.

I'm not able to reproduce this on the Desktop box, as there is a different

* fullscreen children widget does not maximize and shows in the left top
corner above my application
* fullscreen not children widget shows maximized (but does not cover illume
bar) on a different window switcher slot

For fullscreen widget I mean a widget shown with myWidget->showFullScreen()
method. The widget its self is not a real window or dialog, but a subclass
of the generic QWidget object.

Thanks for your effort!
