I've seen this, too. A reliable way to cause it on my system is to start 
VLC on the command line with a non-existing file. This provokes VLC 
display a CPU-burning loop of error messages. The only way I've found to 
stop this is to kill the VLC process.

Plasmashell is not involved in this in any obvious way, but some time 
afterward plasmashell itself goes to 100% CPU, too, and needs to be 
forcibly restarted.
