KDE windows (kalarm) -- un-switchable-to, un-clickable (unpredictably)

I have managed to install kdepim4 on MacOS 10.14.6 (on a MacBook) to be
able to use Kalarm. I have come pretty far (jumped through the hoops
described at wiki:KDE <https://trac.macports.org/wiki/KDE> so the window
content doesn't flicker anymore etc.).

Right now my problem is the following: it seems that the pop-up alarm
windows (and in general, all Kalarm windows) more often than not seem to
behave as if something was in front of them - they receive neither keyboard
nor mouse input. (If I switch to a completely different application then
back to the problematic window, that sometimes solves this and I can at
least close it -- but even then, they are not brought in front of their
parent window. I can always move them with the mouse though!)

E.g., in the screenshot I can't click on the edit window (which is a child
of the alarm window), nor on the alarm message window, nor on the main
Kalarm window (bottom right)

It would be great to solve these issues, because aside from these Kalarm
seems to work pretty fine!
