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 --exit-with-session 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.
