If this word appears on a computer used in a school in the USA, the
software would almost certainly be banned from use immediately and
permanently.  The word has no legitimate use, it is a vulgarism, and
should not be included in any educational packages.

Bug description:
Binary package hint: ktouch

I am using ubuntu 10.4.
ktouch version: 4:4.4.2-0ubuntu2

I was following a lecture to learn Dvorak (Training > Default Lectures .. > Dvorak (auto-generated))
Among the various English and pseudo-English words KTouch asked me to type, I encountered "cunt".
I imagine it could be a source of trouble if Ubuntu is ever used at school to teach children how to type.
