Seanlynch's comment is dead on. This is a needless hurdle for modem users and it has been around since at least kubuntu 5.04.
There is an easy way to ensure it never happens again: keep a machine around with a dial-up modem and install new kubuntu versions on it. Until this happens, ubuntu/kubuntu cannot claim to support users with dial-up connections. Granny shouldn't have to create empty files or use sudo and a text editor to amend kppp-options.
