I have never heard of this issue.  If these ports are part of a USB hub, it 
may be the hub.  Many hardware manufacturers use USB hubs on the front or 
back of machines to increase the number of ports they have.  These USB hubs 
sometimes don't support USB2.0 in my experience.  I've also noticed that 
sometimes these USB ports don't work very well at all.

I'd be surprised if this was a GNU/Linux or Kubuntu-related issue.
