is this different than [1] (upstream [2]) I linked in my first post?
What videocard do you have, can you hit alt-shift-f12 twice next it
happens to disable/enable compositing?

in the latest set of source tarballs, but can you test nevertheless if
disabling those fixes it?

can you start other things from KDE's autostart?
