No crashes, but it is pretty much all documented under: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=323065. Feel free to add to the bug report if this is what you are talking about (haven't tried the FOS drivers yet as I need the 3.11 power management first since it is a laptop). Didn't happen to me in 4.10.
    Maybe you could try with different OpenGL versions. In the system settings panel, under Desktop Appearance you can now tweak the way the desktop is composited. Maybe OpenGL 2.1 works better. You should also try Raster instead of native (If I remember correctly, native used to garbage some parts of certain windows such as Steam).

    I hope this helps!

    Do you have kwin crash issues?
    I am, but not crashes.

    The issue is present with opengl1..2..and 3 profile.., I think that is a bug in catalyst.

Supposedly, the new shiny Qt functionality used by the notifications applet is broken somewhere and no-one has been able to figure out where in eight months.
    Ouch, that does look like an annoying bug Luckily I don't seem to be affected by it on either of my laptops (both intel graphics).
