Well, the debug is caused by an underlying library and probably deserves
a seperate bug report.

But there is indeed something very wrong with your ksycoca4 (or rather -

Reading through the log you attached you will find a lot of lines saying
"new:" or "modified:" each of those lines represents either a newly
installed (in this case most importantly KOffice) or a updated .desktop

This is very concerning because it seems that something prevented your
kbuildsycoca4 from being autoexecuted (or at least prevented it from
storing its data afterwards). As far as I know this tool should be
invoked by one of the most essential components of the KDE desktop, so I
find it rather impossible that it didn't get run at all, which makes
this whole issue a whole lot more weird.

Also, I'd like to mention that I failed to reproduce this issue on my almost-stock-jaunty installation. Jonathan Thomas is now going to try with a clean jaunty installation and KOffice 2.0.0.
It is indeed possible that whatever causes this issue is not present in Kubuntu 9.04 and/or KOffice 2.0.0.
