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.
