I had previously posted: When I start a new session (old session still 
running), the older session's plasmashell CPU is way up, sometimes bogging the 
system! If I unlock the old session's desktop, that problem subsides, though 
its plasmashell can still sometimes eat a lot of CPU, but not crippling.

What is the difference between "kstart plasmashell" and (simply) "plasmashell" 
to restart it?
