    I have the same problem.  I'm running the same apps as you are. 
This is strictly a JAMin/KDE problem though.  It doesn't happen under
any other WM that I know of.  You can actually run jamin -d with nothing
else going on and cause it to happen.  I have no idea how to debug the
problem.  If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.
