Kexi/Kubuntu 5.04 --> relocation error: /usr/lib/

(I posted this to the KOffice and Kubuntu Users lists previously, with 
out success.)

I'm running Kubuntu 5.04 (upgraded from Ubuntu 5.04 install) with 
KOffice installed from universe. When I try to run Kexi from the 
desktop, I get the open/new file dialog, but the program dumps as 
soon as I try to create a new database. I made the mistake of 
checking off that I don't want to see the dialog anymore, so now the 
cursor spins for a time on startup, then quits. Starting up Kexi from  
a term window shows:

pmbuc at pmbent1:~$ kexi
kexi: relocation error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: 

In my Googling, I have seen some posts on other forums that there may 
be a problem with mislocation of files due to changes in KDE 3.4, but 
no solution was apparent. I had this working right-out-of-the-box 
under Debian Sid, which was running KDE 3.4, as well. 

The developer doesn't seem to offer much support off of his site, the 
KOffice list appears to be primarily for developers, not end-users, 
and the Kubuntu Users list seems to be sparsely populated. Any help 
on this? Pointers to solutions?

Thanks in advance,
