Could you check if you also have several dbus-daemon or dbus-launch running?
Yep, there's several:
$ ps ax| grep dbus
1577 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
4719 pts/2 S+ 0:00 grep --colour=auto dbus
21453 ? S 0:00 dbus-launch --autolaunch
0147cf0965fedda7d4ee00360000000d --binary-syntax --close-stderr
21454 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5
--print-address 7 --session
21469 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax
21470 ? Ss 0:03 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5
--print-address 15 --session
21478 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon
--config-file=/etc/at-spi2/accessibility.conf --nofork --print-address 3
I.e. maybe logout doesn't kill those and new login doesn't find the old running
one and thus restarting everything that is D-Bus based session infrastructure.
Logout kills some of them, but not all. The processes owned by "sddm"
are not killed, unless I stop the sddm service.
What I noticed is that on logout, kuiserver5 and kded5 are not killed.
On each login, additional ones are spawned. I can kill kuiserver5
manually, but kded5 is unkillable, unless I force a "killall -9 kded5".
There's other weird issues as well when the desktop gets into the broken
state. Clicking on links for example takes ages to open them in the
browser. For example, if I click a URL in, say, Thunderbird, 5 times,
nothing happens. Then, about 50 seconds later, they all open at once and
5 new tabs appear in the browser. This doesn't happen prior to the
desktop glitching up.
