For the third time my KDE Plasma Workspace has failed during the
post-installation software update. On the third occasion (but not the
other 2) it managed to display an error dialogue box, though I could not
send a bug report directly since the system hang had disabled the mouse
and keyboard. However, the dialogue box contained some information which
may be of use to you:
"Plasma closed Unexpectedly"
"Executable: plasmashell (deleted) PID: 2204 Signal: Segmentation fault

However, F22 is still installed, and if you point me in the right
direction I might be able to get some more useful data from a system
log, if there is one covering the software update.
Any other suggestions would be welcome.
