After a while after logging in to KDE (maybe an hour, maybe two, maybe
five, depends) all my global shortcuts stop working (including default
ones, like Ctrl+F11 or PrintScr where "present windows" or Spectacle
aren't shown, and custom ones, like WinKey+W for starting my web

Furthermore, the systray gets stuck and contains icons from application
that are no longer running. Qutting Amarok for example will leave the
systray icon behind. Which still shows the menus, btw, it isn't really
frozen. But they do nothing, since the application the systray icon
belongs to is not longer running.

Even worse, when starting applications that use a systray icon, their
window isn't showing. There's no way to see those applications. They run
in the background and are invisible.

Any tips? I'm on:

KDE Plasma 5.5.3 KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 KDE Applications 15.8.3 + 15.12.1

I have no idea where to report this bug. There's no "I don't know which
part of KDE this belongs to" choice on the bug tracker.

Assuming you can get either krunner or konsole up, try

kquitapp5 plasmashell; sleep 1; plasmashell &; sleep 1; disown

"kquitapp5 plasmashell" kills it, but "plasmashell &" doesn't bring it up completely. It shows the desktop wallpaper and hangs there for a while. No panel, no desktop icons, no nothing.

After about 40 seconds, the panel and icons come up.

This is SERIOUSLY broken :-/
