Today I updated my system and answered yes to all doing so. After a reboot I only see the programs that are configured to start on startup and no windows frames are available (however I can interact with the on-top-of-all opened program windows) My /var/log/pacman.log changes are reflected here:

[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -Syu --color never'
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] synchronizing package lists
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] starting full system upgrade
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] removed kactivities (4.13.0-1)
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] removed polkit-qt (0.103.0-3)
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] upgraded ffmpeg (1:2.3-1 -> 1:2.3.1-1)
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] installed kactivities4 (4.13.3-1)
[2014-07-31 15:24] [PACMAN] installed polkit-qt4 (0.112-1)

The problem is with kactivities4. Downgrade it by cding into /var/cache/pacman/pkg

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/

and installing the previously removed one

pacman -U kactivities-4.13.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I don't know why, but it works :p
