Desktop icon and widget placement corruption on startup

Hello again,

I have had this issue for a very long time but I only got motivated enough to post about this issue now. Every time I start my computer there is a good chance that one of my desktop widgets or icons have changed their place.

The CPU and Memory widgets regularly get displaced by a certain offset, but less often the icons are also misplaced from their original location. On very rare occasions the bottom panel (task bar?) is also displaced to somewhere near the middle of the screen.

I managed to capture this as screenshots today, I cannot embed the images as the forum complains that they cannot be wider than 720 pixels :-\

The Imgur gallery has 2 examples of the corruption with a 3rd picture with original placement for reference. I am using Fedora 29 KDE Spin and Nvidia Graphics if that matters...

Thanks for the help in advance! :)

Forgot to mention this but my resolution has always been constant, but for a brief period of time I can see that the desktop uses a smaller area of the screen during start-up, maybe this is somehow related to my problem?

The bug indeed seems to be related, I have made a comment and have attached the screenshots as well: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=354802#c24

Thanks Rog131!
