Bug ID: 368838
           Summary: plasmashell keeps eating ram, but never release it.
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: 5.7.5
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general

On an always on system, my plasmashell memory usage grows and grows.
Last time i checked before restarting it, it was eating almost 900MB of ram.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. measure the memory usage of plasmashell just after startup
2. use it (open apps, display notifications, move widgets, show menu, clock,
3. leave it as it was in the fresh state (close apps, close notifications
restore panel position etc)
3. measure the memory usage again
4. leave it alone for some time (30 minutes?)
5. check the ram usage again

Actual Results:  
The ram usage increased a lot.

Expected Results:  
The ram usage to be almost back to the startup state.

I attached pmap,ksysguard and /proc/$(pidof plasmashell)/status  before and
after usage.
Where usage has been:
Show the 'kickoff menu' and walk through applications
send notifications
show notifications
show calendar
hover the mouse on the taskbar items
right click on the desktop to show his configuration window
right click on the desktop to show the activities window
move a desktop widget
resize a desktop widget to the entire screen size
click on the panel configuration icon
show the available widgets
Revert all of the changes so that apparently it is a newly started session

Before all the described operations, Resident+shared mem was little less than
After, it reached more than  630MB (!)
...and it stays that way (or still grows) till a restart.
