|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.

DISPLAY=":0" /usr/bin/plasmashell &
kwin_x11 --replace &
