Not really. Most of the major updates here landed without our previous
kde-4.3.4 and phonon-4.3.80 ones.
I didn't know this.

Sure, there are exceptions, but genuine driver issues still outnumber
others by far.
I don't know that, just because I don't keep track, but I'll take your
word and agree. And I understand that you guys have other priorities,
That said, video drivers have zero bearing here, flash does.
I didn't know that either.
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.
That would be greatly appreciated, Rex.
Let me/us know what we can do to help. ie bugzilla report, testing,
Nice work, Rex.
