Bug ID: 373131
           Summary: plasmashell freezes irretrievably every few minutes --
                    needs to be killed
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: 5.8.4
          Platform: Debian unstable
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
  Target Milestone: 1.0

since one of the latest updates (about thursday), plasmashell suddenly freezes
every few minutes -- sometimes every 2 or 3, mostly after 20 or 40 minutes.

i am not sure what features exactly fall under "plasmashell", but logout via
ctrl+alt+del works (logout selection comes up), window switching via alt+tab
works as well.
only the panels seem to be affected -- they're frozen, clock doesn't update
anymore and no window can be selected from the taskbar.

it seems to happen more frequently the more windows are open, but that is just
an impression. 

trying to kill plasmashell via kquitapp5 in that case produces this:

$ kquitapp5 plasmashell
"Quitting application plasmashell failed. Error reported was:\n\n    
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply : Did not receive a reply. Possible causes
include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security
policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection
was broken."

there's nothing in .xsession-errors, or any other logs, and since there seem to
be no debug packages available in debian/sid I can't even produce a useful dump
with drkonqui

any hints what I can do to narrow the cause down?
