Since at least xorg-server 1.19.5 and continuing with xorg-server 1.20-rc's plamashell and the native steam client have freezes
The plamsashell freeze can be reproduced by bringing up the kicker menu a few times, or navigating the Status & Notifications system tray
The steam freeze can be reproduced by bringing up the friends menu then starting a chat
This doesn't happen with the intel or amdgpu ddx's

journalctl Plasma Won't Start
After the last freeze I tried restarting X with both intel and modesetting ddx's (systemctl restart sddm) however Plasma wouldn't start
Restarting dbus fixed the issue
Does https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/221465/ fix this?
It certainly helped but Ajax submitted this one too

Just helped, or completely fixed the freezes?

As you can see, I'm involved there. :) I'm afraid it's too heavy-handed.

I'm afraid I don't have access to my machine until Tuesday night now

I'm affected by this bug as well since the upgrade to X.org 1.20. Plasma on X11 freezes from time to time and the Steam client on X11 sometimes as well. This happens only on my AMD GPU's with the Mesa modesetting driver. Plasma-Wayland itself is stable, but the Steam Client freezes quite fast on XWayland when hovering over the menu's like STORE LIBRARY COMMUNITY...
