Older Plasma themes, which are still offered also for current Plasma 5 e.g.
from store.kde.org, are missing out "shadow-*" elements for
"widgets/panel-background". The old code of the PanelShadows class does not
handle that case though, and as result for X11 sets a _KDE_NET_WM_SHADOW
property with "0" for most of the pixmaps due to them being an empty pixmap
in at least one dimension (except for the emtpy corner pixmap which is
always 1,1). The resulting behaviour with current KWin (X11) is this:
- when starting a Plasma shell with a theme without panel shadow elements, KWin does not show shadows
- when switching from a theme with shadow elements to one without, the shadow of the previous theme is continued to be used.
Reason is that KWin when parsing that property cancels the parsing when it
comes across a "0"/null id for a shadow pixmap, without further error
handling, so either does not create a shadow or keeps the old.
This patch catches the case of themes without any panel shadow elements and
only sets the _KDE_NET_WM_SHADOW property or wayland shadow if there are
shadows, otherwise removes them if needed.
