No improvement. The crash at logout still occurs.

Well, looking into processes, I also saw those stopped "/usr/bin/plasmashell --shut-up" processes, but they didn't cause any logout/login problem here and could be killed easily.

Anyway, tried three times logout/login and they don't occur with "-6" for me. So, as far as I was affected, #1434870 is fixed for me.

Indeed, version 5.8.6-6 removes the bug (while 5.8.6-5 did not). At samoht0: I was the one who reported the bug. This is what I experienced with 5.8.6-5 (and -4) when logging off: - screen turn black (as usual) - subsequently the desktop appears again (though partly); at the bottom the bar appears again ... showing me an icon, telling me that "plasma has closed UNexpectedly" - after some time the system recuperates itself, showing the greeter again - the output of "ps" shows lingering plasmashell processes (which is normally NOT the case)

The "logoff" I was used to: screen turns black, a faint flicker of the screen (sometimes), the greeter showing itself. No lingering plasmashells.

All of the above made me report a bug ...

karma: +1

Desktop and/or notification didn't (re-)appear here. But some debug stuff (ABRT, systemd coredump) isn't installed/configured like in the fedora vanilla setup. So this might make the difference.
