Must admit I had not used Konqueror to visit the site.
But, firing it up in Konq does give the issue Jonathon describes.
The error is - 
Error: http://ubuntu-uk.org/: TypeError: Value undefined (result of expression 
$("q").addEvent) is not an object. Cannot be called.

On Firefox with scripts disabled, the site shows fine.

Interestingly, before the site is fully loaded, a dialog box appears, stating 
that a script is causing KHTML to freeze and asking if you wish to continue. 
Opening the Ubuntu home page itself also gives the same error message! So 
maybe the Ubuntu site has a similar issue?  Note that the Ubuntu site does 
load in Konq, but the error message is there on both sites.
