I do not experience any serious graphics bugs, but I have three issues
which I didn't report yet:

1) Sometimes, when I change settings in 'systemsettings' (forgot which
ones, have to investigate again), kwin and/or plasma-desktop freeze and
I cannot do anything but move the mouse or switch to VT.

2) dolphin segfaults. A lot. All the time. It's annoying.

3) I don't understand why, but starting xbindkeys with KDE's autostart
is broken: When I want to use qdbus or dolphin from xbindkeys, nothing
happens. When I kill and launch it again later, everything seems to work.

I can live with all of those for now. I cannot reproduce 1) and 2)
reliably, or explain why 3) occurs, so don't consider these blockers -
just letting you know.
