eh.. wanted to check what version of plasma you had on stable and I think it doesn't have that annoying bug with the KWIN compositor.
It has already been reported also from other distro users with ATI and NVIDIA cards.

tbh I was expecting a very quick fix from them but It has been a month already and Plasma 5 developers didnt release any fix.
I think not many users are using unstable repos thats why the problem is not a big issue so I guess they will release bug fixes according to Plasma 5 schedule releases.

Here is a sample of how it is
You open Kodi Media Player to watch a movie-> compositor breaks - black shadows all over
You open Unreal Engine to learn something -> compositor breaks - black shadows all over
You open to play a steam game -> compositor breaks - black shadows all over
You open to play Mame Games -> compositor breaks - black shadows all over
the compositor can be disabled with shift + alt + f12, or you can try changing the rendering engine on the settings, I have been having problems if I use opengl there, but xRender seems to works fine

Is there someone, who can reproduce this? After the last few updates (either Firmware or KDE update - related) the folling Problem persists:

When connecting an external monitor, switching to it, then disconnecting it, plasma crashes and restarts, leaving display brightness level settings without effect. (xbacklight)
