I upgraded Kubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and got a broken up screen when KDE started.  
After some messing around in terminal mode, it let me upgrade to 11.10, which 
was my orginal target.  When I boot 11.10, I get the following:

Application: Plasma Desktop Shell (plasma-desktop), signal: Segmentation fault

I searched for it on and it identified it as  bug 
#285663, which was closed as a dupl of bug #280494, which was fixed.

It's obviously not fixed for me.  What do I do now (besides waiting for Kubuntu 
12.04 and installing it rather than upgrading)?
