I am not familiar with the issue but I doubt that Kubuntu (If that is
what k5u stands for) is doing anything about it. Kubuntu only supports
KDE4 now, the KDE 3 support is third-party, provided by the developer
of Pearson Computing. You might want to ask on his mailing list about
possible solutions.

I am sorry, I simply do not know anything about that issue. I have
never encountered it nor heard of the issue before.
