I understand your frustration but basically logs show that you are getting
random GPU lockups, searching Google for "radeon r7 370 lockup" shows a lot
of results even from Windows. So at this point I believe this might be a
hardware problem.

I considered a hardware problem, but that seems unlikely for many reasons: The
video card is still very new (about an year now) and a solid Gigabyte model...
I've had another Radeon / Gigabyte card before it, which lasted me for nearly a
decade. This issue is also triggered only by the KDE desktop, when certain
desktop effects play or I select some windows (even with effects turned off)...
I play high-end games on my machine, yet even they don't trigger this exact
crash! The behavior of the crash also closely indicates a software problem...
hardware issues usually cause a total freeze (Kernel panic), whereas this only
freezes the desktop (without mouse pointer) then causes the monitor to shut

If it's a GPU lockup, and it's in the fairly recent upstream code, could you
rather raise the report to upstream (e.g. There
you may get more attention.

Also, please don't touch the priority field of bugzilla. It's not the field
the reporter may modify. You can adjust the severity, but not the priority.

I have a report there as well, mirroring this one: Since only windows in KDE
seem to trigger this specific crash, I'll probably make a third mirror on KDE's
bug tracker as well... need to consider if it's related closely enough to KDE
for that.
