The Kexi package in Kubuntu/Ubuntu is a direct, automatic import from
Debian, and as such is not actually touched by Kubuntu or Ubuntu folks at
all. As a so-called Universe (1) package, it has zero testing and only has
support from the community - i.e. not officially supported.

I think the user is hitting this bug (2) (3)

I imagine it should be fairly simple to fix.
It would be worth reporting this on Launchpad (4)
