I have sometimes had the plasma-workspace freeze also - I am unsure
what it is related to - but possibly to chrome in my case - but if I
use the keyboard shortcuts to switch virtual desktops it sometimes
clears - and also if I use ctrl-F2 to get to a different console, and
then back to the graphical console it also sometimes clears but often
if I then logout I get a plasma-workspace crash reporter coming up
when I try to logout - occasionally I find that I have continued to
work but then if I go to the "Leave" icon it freezes and won't logout
or shutdown - tickling it with the keyboard shortcuts sometimes
unfreezes it but then usually the KDE crash reporter comes up during
the shutdown process.... so I don't know what the culprit is but I
have no indications in the logs that anything is unusual!
