Most likely you're running kde 3.5.3. This is a known bug with
Kubuntu. If you run Edgy, you don't have this problem because the KDE
3.5.3 in edgy is fixed. Unfortunately nobody wants to do a backport or
even include 3.5.3 in the ubuntu repositories for dapper.
To fix the problem, see this thread
This will lead you do downloading a file and replacing the file
containing the bug.
