  Kubuntu panel, starter, desktop do not redraw on change using EGL in

Status in plasma-desktop package in Fedora:

Bug description:
  After my upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10 certain Plasma elements don't redraw.
  This affects the task bar (in the panel), the starter and the desktop at least.

  So after starting an application it's not shown in the task bar. After
  adding a favourite it's not shown in the starter and after dropping a
  file on the desktop it's not shown.

  For the task bar I found a work around, by selecting the auto hide
  function. So each time I move to the bottom edge the task bar pops up,
  gets redrawn and shows the correct open applications.

  For the starter: after adding a favourite, click the starter icon
  (closes), then click again (opens with the change shown).

  For the desktop I could only logoff, then login.

  Prior to upgrading I had 15.04 with the Kubuntu Backports installed,
  and had not this issue.
