I have upgraded this week to Fedora 26 (post alpha).
The only issue that I have is that kontact hangs when launched. The cpu time
goes to 100% for kontact.
This is a minor annoyance since kmail, the component that I am mostly
interested in, works standalone with no apparent issue.
This is the only difference that I get from F25 either in KDE/plasma or in any
other component. :-)
Scrollbar buttons disappeared, like the idiotic GTK3 defaults. How does one go
about getting them back?

This is definitely a kernel issue from what I am reading.
Ian, your suggestion to type in "kstart kwin --replace" worked if I had
a konsole open.
Anything I typed was associated with the last application open.
