That's it.
In fact, in germany, for example, many universities use WPA-Enterprise with TTLS with PAP.
They are organised in the "DFNRoaming/eduroam".
(Some of them can be seen here: http://airoserv4.dfn.de/ - but not all are located in this map.)

Students, research assistants and professors sould be a very important
usership of Kubuntu.

For comparision:
This is what gnome user have to do to connect to these networks:
http://www.uni-jena.de/Linux_mit_Networkmanager.html (Since at least Ubuntu 7.10 !!)

With KDE you have to install the gnome network manager, wicd-client or write wpa_supplicant config files manually.
But normal users do not know this. They see the option in the plasma widget and try to connect. And so, they might come to the conclusion that Kubuntu, Ubuntu or even Linux has no working WLAN ability. (Not all users are able to report or read bugs.)

I wrote this second comment, because this bug is a gui-only problem
(network-manager works correctly) and Kubuntu is affected scince jaunty
-  by the way: the KDE3 Knetworkmanager works. (More than a half year,
no KDE oder Kubuntu Developer commited a final bug fix - Maybe the
problem was classified as "very unimportant".)
