plasmashell slowly gobbles more cpu and most annoyingly makes the desktop noticeably sluggish. The taskbar will miss clicks, switching windows with alt-tab is slow to pop up, things scroll slower, etc... Everything is the newest, using KDE5, nothing special done compile-wise.

Without going into too much useless detail has anyone else noticed this?

Here is a script I use every few hours to "refresh" my desktop back to being normal. If you think your affected give this a try, it will be very noticeable if you are.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

pkill plasmashell
sleep 2
DISPLAY=":0" /usr/bin/plasmashell &
sleep 8
kwin_x11 --replace &
