I can say that I seem to be in a similar situation. I just upgraded to gutsy 
and followed the instructions on kubuntu. When I log into the KDE 4 session, 
I get:

- runner
- plasma developer toolbox
- where kicker is/supposed to be I get two widgets that say: This object could 
not be created

I was under the impression that a number of additional plasma applets were 
included/available with the beta (judging from articles from the dot and 
such). As it is, there isn't a lot that I can do within a kde 4 session atm? 
Even exiting the session I resorted to CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE :O. 

Will the kubuntu kde4 packages get updated periodically or is this it till the 
next kde beta?

I'm not familiar with kdebase-workspace, what is it supposed to include that 
isn't in any of the 'standard' kde packages (libs, pimlibs, base...)? I sort 
of assumed that it would include goodies that haven't made it into the kde 
trunk yet.
