Plasmashell freezes

After recent distro upgrades plasmashell began to accidentally freeze several times per day: force to kill it and restart. Very annoying!!! What to do? report a bug to KDE? Any workaround?

The bug: 465872 – Plasma keeps crashing

Mind sharing your system and graphics hardware details ans that might be relevant here…

inxi -SGa

There is also a bug at openSUSE

I am having a similar problem with Gnome after the latest upgrade. The simplest way to reproduce it is to copy a password from KeePassXC. Terminal freezes, Firefox freezes etc.

Same bug reports from me:

The latter with debug symbols.
