to me, it sounds like behavior change that was there before, but gotten 
changed likely for efficiency reasons in nvidia, but after KDE started showing 
quite some issues, it gotten removed... these are all upstream bugs, and it 
could be beneficial if you can submit a bugreport to the upstream about it 

however, i would hope KDE would have fixed their assumption on it, so, maybe 
you could test in the cauldron if possible?

i don't think we ourselves can do much about this...
