Are you quite certain that KDE is to blame? If you run flux on this
laptop, is everything "normal"? Seems a jump in logic to assume it's
KDE if that's all you've ever run on a brand spanking new machine;
but, you weren't specific about this. Try another WM and see if the
problem evaporate; that should at least give you a starting point to
know what to look for.....
One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.
