As a reasonably advanced gentoo user here who's not a dev but can git-
bisect when necessary and isn't afraid to apply patches when they're 
necessary to keep behavior I prefer, I'd probably git-bisect the problem 
down to an individual commit, create a patch from it reverting that 
commit, and drop that patch in /etc/portage/patches/kde-base/plasma-
workspace so it would automatically get applied to future updates as I 
rebuild the package.

I've done pretty much just that with several kde packages, including 
gwenview and superkaramba.

But that's understandably "a bit" extreme for an ordinary binary-based 
distro user who may not have built a package from sources in their life, 
and I already run with a reasonably small panel so I don't have that 
particular itch to scratch, to come up with the patch so it can be simply 
applied by anyone willing to build from sources, and even if I did, 
chances are you're using a pre-built package and don't care enough about 
it to build from sources and apply a patch (tho as an arch user I'd guess 
your chances of routinely building /some/ things from sources is 
reasonably high), so...
