since plasma 5.5.1-1 packages I notice a bug :

- sometimes the left mouse click is not detected when I click on the plasma taskbar ( kickoff, K menu ), for example if firefox is minimized on the taskbar then sometimes a mouse click for restoring the firefox window doesn't work, I have to do this mouse click twice in order to restore the window,

this bug doesn't occur with plasma 5.5.0,

I can reproduce this bug on my PC ( archlinux 64 bits ) and on a qemu virtual machine i686,

this bug occurs randomly ( you have to test at least 10 times in order to trigger the bug, for example 3 windows opened or minimized, then try to click on the taskbar in order to minimize/restore on of these 3 windows, you will notice that sometimes the mouse click is not detected by plasma 5.5.1 )

Additional info:
* package version(s) plasma 5.5.1-1 packages
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- update to plasma 5.5.1-1 packages
- sometimes when you want to minimize or restore a window ( firefox, thunderbird, dolphin for example ) the plasma taskbar doesn't detect the left mouse click
- this bug doesn't occur with the previous versions of plasma ( for example 5.5.0 )
This task depends upon

Have you reported this upstream? I've noticed it as well.

This was supposed to be fixed in 5.5.1. There's some weirdness going on with the 5.5.1 source, it's missing some other commits too.
