I hate to sound like a smartass.. but have you tried logging out of kde, 
and back in? Your uptime won't suffer, and KDE will be able to 
completely refresh.. There may some sort of leak somewhere..

AFAIK, no one has reported a bug about this.. perhaps if you have time, 
you can try to narrow it down to exactly what.

You can also try disabling all notifications.. ymmv
