actually yes it is. and if you filed it in launchpad, someone from the
ubuntu bugsquad will link it upstream to bugs.kde.org. you have to keep
in mind, that if a bug is solved in KDE it will be solved in kubuntu
since that's where the devs get their packages from, from KDE! and
producing a patch to the kubuntu version of KDE only is not a helpful
way for the community, and very selfish actually.

which also reminds me, that if you consider yourself, or want to be a
helpful member of the community, and don't know much programming, you
can actually help us in the ubuntu bugsquad, we lack members, and
thousands of bugs are filed daily, it would be helpful if there is a lot
of people helping us out. you can visit
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad/KnowledgeBase for more info, or reach
us in the #ubuntu-bugs IRC channel, freenode server.
