Add to /etc/network/interfaces:  
auto eth1  
iface eth1 inet dhcp  
        wireless-essid <essid>  
        wireless-key <key>

It, of course, doesn't render Kubuntu useless, but this whole kcontrol issue certainly makes it more difficult to  
recommend it the brand new Linux users. No doubt about that.
