I would not be surprised to find that there were bugs in a Beta release. 
  But, what does building it from source have to do with anything?  I 
have build previous releases of KDE from source hundreds of times.

What is wrong is that this is release 4.4.1 which is not a Beta release 
-- at least KDE does not represent it as a Beta release although I might 
differ about that.

What is wrong is that it appears that a new feature was added before the 
feature was 'ready for prime time' (before it was stable and worked). 
This is an ongoing issue with KDE and they need to find a solution to it.
