This appears to be another xsession issue like what we fixed with MATE.
The /usr/share/xsessions/plasma.desktop needs to have
Exec=/usr/bin/ck-launch-session startplasma-x11 in order to start
correctly from sddm. However, after trying this it seems the newly
available shutdown and reboot options from inside Plasma do not work
correctly - was that your experience as well? I will probably need to
hand this over to our Plasma maintainer at this point.
