The first thing which I noticed was that I can no longer right-click on the

up with is a slightly
dimmed screen. There is no way to either RESTART or SHUT DOWN the computer
using this method.
Clicking on the screen brings it back to its 'original' brightness.

A similar thing occurs when one clicks on KICKOFF and selects LEAVE - one
cannot Shut Down or Restart.

At the moment, the ONLY way (apart from pressing the OFF switch on the computer
box) is to open
TERMINAL, "login" as root and enter 'HALT -P'.

Earlier today I had to go out and, without thinking, did LOCK SCREEN. I could
not 'unlock' the
screen in the normal way; the mouse was active but that was all. The only way I
regained control
over the system was to hit the BIG RED BUTTON :-( .

Did you ever solve this?

Because I am seeing NONE of these symptoms here.
Everything you mention works just fine here with the latest kde upgrades 4.14.0.

Are you logged in as another user and tried it? Maybe some part of your
account's config got hozed.

Well, I created a new user and logged in but nothing has changed - get identical results. Here are 2 screenshots, one of the Menu in Kickoff

and this one is of the bottom RH of the panel

which looks nothing like I see on my wife's 13.1 system (and on my laptop).

Also just discovered another thing which does not work: the above images are in *.png format; I tried to convert them to *.jpg in Dolphin but the attempts were simply ignored.

Something very strange going on but I cannot start to even think where to start looking.
