I don't know if the slowdowns are related to Amarok of plasma, but I have them 
too. kded at 100%, the hiccups where nothing reacts for a few seconds...

There are already bugs files for the Amarok crash. Please mark yours as a 
duplicate if it matches one of the below bugs. The last one might be yours 
because of the 'on closing'. I never close Amarok. It crashes by itself.

* Amarok hangs while holding down of next/previous track hotkey
   and its upstream bug:
* Amarok crashes after pressing "next track" (global hotkey)

* Plasma crash in [QString, KIconEffect::fingerprint, 
KIconLoaderPrivate::makeCacheKey, KIconLoader::loadIcon]
