    That should not affect the keyboard layout at all anyway.

    The problem apparently isn't specific to mc either, as this mailinglist post suggests:
    https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00151.html

    So it seems to be somewhere deeper I suppose, maybe bash itself or some system startup script.
    Or maybe it could be a bug in the new startplasma program that's used instead of startkde now? :-/ (that would "run" ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh on login AFAIK)
    I forgot to write that after "rm ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh" you should restart plasma (logout-login).

    Yes, because the problem was indeed that start-plasma-* corrupted the environment when "running" ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh during login (it didn't properly handle variables that contain newlines, like exported functions do).

    A fix is on the way to Tumbleweed now:
    https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/740993

    It's already in KDE:Frameworks5 for Leap 15.0/15.1.

    PS: it looks like it does the same when running the scripts in ~/.config/plasma-desktop/env/, so if you have one in there deleting ~/.config/plasma-locale-settings.sh probably won't help. (I haven't verified that though)
