WM locking on first login, but clears after x restart

Hiya.

I’m having a minor inconvenient issue with Suse 11.2/KDE4.3.

From a cold boot, and then the first login, the desktop and WM [Compiz-Emerald] loads ok, but the plasmoids/icons are not ‘clickable’, although I can use keyboard, Command Line and ‘right click’ menus ok.

If I restart X, then log in again, everything is ok, and stays ok until the next cold boot.

It’s as if the plasma desktop is masked [if that makes sense?], but only on the first login, as if there is a boot sequence issue or something.

Any help is appreciated.

For any followers, this was resolved with a recent zypper update, along with other issues on my system, no idea what was causing it.
