Bug Description

After the Plasma 5 panel crashed* many letters in all applications checked (Firefox, Thunderbird) disappeared. In some cases, the drop shadows of letters did appear, but the letter above did not. I'll attach screenshots.

Distro: Kubuntu 15.10

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 15.10
Release: 15.10

$ uname -a
Linux loathe 4.2.0-16-generic #19-Ubuntu SMP Thu Oct 8 15:35:06 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

* The Plasma 5 panel crashed after clicking the Open All arrow on the System Tray. The KDE bug reporting wizard did not find debug symbols to install so I did not report it.

And also affects all of my family's Ubuntu systems running on HP Streams. This is a critical bug.
