In KDE 3.5.8, when attempting to grab a screenshot and save it to an *existing* file (by clicking on its name) the saved image contains a black rectangle covering the area that was previously occupied by the file selection dialog.

Typing an already existing name does not cause this problem.

    I can't reproduce this, I suspect this is a driver issue. With what graphics card and drivers are you seeing this?

    The one-line-patch below "fixes" the bug by issuing an immediate repaint event just before the image capture takes place. I admit that it's not very elegant; surely there must be better ways to do it but at least this removes this annoying problem for the time being.
