Sorry, I won't, as the problem lies totally on the kubuntu side.

Their kubuntu_9911_xdg_user_dirs_dirpath.diff patch applied to kdesktop make 
kdesktop use XDG_DESKTOP_DIR instead of KGlobalSettings::desktopPath().
The patch is not the problem itself, but if the kubuntu guys do not manage to 
get the dependancy right on the xdg-user-dirs package, KDE has no fault in
