Ah, I see... maybe this is what Johnny Izzo is experiencing as well...
I have never used a mobile hotspot dongle, as I am fortunate enough to 
have internet service available where I live.  That seems like something 
that the lead developers should look into.  However I am certain they 
deserve a good holiday for their efforts working so hard down to the line.
I am not extremely familiar with the kernel, or modules that are loaded 
into the kernel.  But if Kubuntu automatically loads them, but Lubuntu 
doesn't, I do think that would be a bug against something more specific 
to Lubuntu.  Does the same issue happen with a gnome-based distro (or 
other distro using nm-applet... as KDE uses a different one)?  If the 
same thing happens in XFCE/Unity/Gnome/MATE/etc... then the bug is most 
likely pointing to the right problem area (the gnome network manager), 
but it could probably be narrowed down further, to determine what 
package the problem is in (which one doesn't install/load all the right 
kernel models?)
