Not really. Most of the major updates here landed without our previous
kde-4.3.4 and phonon-4.3.80 ones.
b) I have reported a number of bug that were shut down due to
of the proprietary nvidia driver" where it was ultimately found that the

Sure, there are exceptions, but genuine driver issues still outnumber

That said, video drivers have zero bearing here, flash does.
I can chime in to report that I too have seen higher cpu usage with
flash/nspluginview, but only noticed recently, *after* a flash-plugin
update that I installed on Jan 27.
