Personally, I haven't seen the problem you mention, and I've installed 
my fair share of Kubuntus lately.

It sure sounds a bit odd. Especially since you mention it is a fresh 
install in which I suspect you haven't been mocking around a whole lot. 
Anyhow, is see Jonathan Riddell announced the final release of Kubuntu 
just a few hours ago - any chance you could try that ISO (maybe with 
QEMU if you don't want to reinstall).

Maybe, but if you can reproduce your problem with the final rel. better 
submit a seperate report about it.
