I can't confirm the problem - just installed netcat on Kubuntu 13.04. 
And your Xubuntu experience shows that there shouldn't be a problem. 
After all the repositories for Xubuntu and Kubuntu are the same. Could 
you provide some more detail? Please run the command

sudo apt-get update

and post the output of the command

sudo apt-get install netcat

in a terminal on the machine with the dependency problem.
