Update: Problem solved. I've rebooted, and now it just works. I cannot reproduce the problem anymore myself.

(Reported as

I run KeePassX, then switch to another application. Now neither is the KeePassX window accessible by using Alt-Tab / task switcher, nor in the left-hand launcher icons. I have to manually move the other application windows out of the way to get back to the KeePassX window. I don't dare minimize it ...

I have the KeePassX icon added to the launcher, but it has no indicator for the open application window, and when I click it again, it just opens another KeePassX instance.

I would expect the KeePassX window(s) to be visible in the launcher and task switcher just like any other application windows.

Any idea what could be the problem?

Workarounds: Right-click on the KeePassX window title bar, and choose "Always On Top". Keeps the window in the foreground and I don't loose it. Or: Alt-Shift-Up also exposes the KeePassX window. (Found the latter on Task switcher not showing terminal windows)

KeePassX is Qt-based, KeePass is the .Net thing. Anyway, never mind my question, as I just restarted my system and the problem just disappeared :/ – Felix Rabe Nov 7 '11 at 15:53
I tried, but didn't have the reputation yet for doing it right away. But thanks for your answers here, might be helpful for other occasions. – Felix Rabe Nov 9 '11 at 22:31
