chrome locks up kde in plasma 5

I have a new installation of Leap 42.1, and it seems to run Plasma 5
fairly well.

However I do tend to have this one consistent problem. When I open up
Chrome, after a few minutes, my desktop and screen locks up. It is not a
complete lock up, as I can still navigate on the web page I am looking
at, but I can’t go to other tabs, and cannot change focus of any
windows. Chrome remains in front and won’t go away, and I cannot move to
other virtual desktops or activities.

I can hit ctrl alt 1 and go to a terminal login, so that allows me to at
least see what processes are running. But even if I kill chrome and the
other desktop applications that are open, it doesn’t change the desktop
when I hit ctrl alt 7 and go back in. The only thing I can do to get out
of it is hit ctrl alt double backspace twice to kill X and then log back in.

It started doing this after I tried to install a program in wine that
didn’t work.

I have heard something about some processes trying to use old kde4 files
or qt4 files and that locking up the screen like this, but I really
don’t know where to begin troubleshooting this problem.

What do I need to post here to give more information? I can find logs
and post them or do whatever.
