    Some of the KDE configuration might be in ".local/share/"
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    Sorry, I didn’t catch that the first time. If other users don’t show this panel-oscillating behavior, the brute-force (but laborious) way to investigate further would be to copy Plasma-/KDE related config files one by one, log out and in each time and observe the changes. Not very tempting.

    If this feature exists, how do I disable it globally for the panel? I don't see anything obvious in the panel "more settings" GUI.
    I know not of such a feature. But if there is one, maybe it’s detectable using dbus-monitor; run it in an xterm/konsole while testing:
    Code:
    $ dbus-monitor 
    signal time=1560500774.903448 sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> destination=:1.42 serial=4 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameLost
       string ":1.42"
    signal time=1560500820.396653 sender=:1.15 -> destination=(null destination) serial=543 path=/component/kwin; interface=org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component; member=globalShortcutPressed
       string "kwin"
       string "Walk Through Windows"
       int64 912097
    Further candidates for interesting messages being logged, additionally to dbus-monitor:
    • journalctl -f -b --no-hostname --output=short-unix
    • dmesg -dT -w
    • tail -f .xsession-errors /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Chances are that at least one of those logs floods your terminal while the panel-flashing occurs. That could be the one containing further hints. Post some of the output here, using the CODE tags (#).
