Bad notification placement
Notifications are sometimes spawned in the wrong position, resulting in a) a portion of the notification being cut off and b) an empty blurred region
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
No clear-cut way to reproduce it that I know of, my apologies, it seems to happen randomly from time to time.
Wrong notification position.
Proper notification position.
Linux/KDE Plasma: Manjaro
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.52.0
Qt Version: 5.11.2
Visual proof is attached.
Which plasma theme?
I get the same problem when I open up Spotify or some other media player and switch tracks really fast, it eventually shows up.
And I get it regardless of the theme I'm using (mostly Breath though, by Manjaro)
P.S. Just to clarity I don't get it just when I'm skipping tracks, it's just the only surefire way of reproducing it that I know of (and even with all the skipping, it takes a long time for it to show up). But it happens with all kinds of other notifications too.

Oh, and this happens with the built-in notification widget and with custom ones from the KDE store

Yes, we're not sure if it's theme specific. In the screenshot I uploaded the theme was Arc-Color (part of the "Arc KDE" package).
With that theme I (rarely) also got a cut off wi-fi notification when I logged in:
I've also dug up Rooty's screenshots with his Breath (or maybe Breeze AlphaBlack, he's not sure) theme:
I'm going to test with stock Breeze to see if it occurs with it.
Caught the bugger with Breeze, albeit weirdly manifested: https://i.ibb.co/smKMDMn/Screenshot-20181221-125438.png

Perhaps there is a similar or same underlying cause, but for now we cannot treat it a as duplicate. This bug here was reproduced with 1x scaling.
Notifications will most likely get a total redesign in 5.16 anyway so we will then have to reevaluate the statuses of our bug reports.
