Just tried it.
I could reproduce this problem with KDE 4.4.5 and Qt 4.6.3.
But this Patch did not fix the Problem for me.
After applying the patch I still get the "*** No Windows ***" Window.
As far as I can tell, the patch just changes the call order bit and the
showEvent code should not be causing problems as long as this is not caused by
a qt bug (which I doubt).
For me the problem looks much more related to grabbing. If I
use pinentry-qt without global grab (echo getpin | ./pinentry-qt4 -g) the
alt+tab works afterwards.
