Bug Description

KDE Plasma is affected by a Qt bug that causes image slideshows to leak memory, eventually exhausting all available memory and crashing the system: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=368838

This principally affects people who use the popular slideshow wallpaper feature. Thankfully, there's a Qt patch to fix it the issue: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/224684/

It's slated to go into Qt 5.11. We should strongly consider cherry-picking it into 5.9.x to get this important fix into our users' hands as soon as possible.
