While they are original, they are in fact handled by kompmgr. :-)  There
are also non-composited shadows that originally came with KDE 3.5.10 as
well, and those are glitchy.

The checkbox in your screenshot is not very accurate.  In TDE it has been
changed to read ""Enable the Trinity window composition manager" instead
of "Use Translucency/Shadows", and if you dig around in the KDE 3.5.10
code a bit you will see what I mean.

kompmgr's shadows (which incidentally are configured using the exact same
kcontrol module with the same general options) work almost 100% on the TDE
system that I am writing this from...

Does this make things a bit clearer?
