Tried to submit a bug at bugs.kde.org and after choosing KDE 3.5.10 and 
Ubuntu distro I get this message:
"You are not using a recent KDE version. Since your bug is likely to be 
fixed already in more recent versions of KDE you can no longer submit 
bugs against your version of KDE. If possible, please update your KDE 
version and see whether the problem persists. If it does, please 
re-submit your bug with the new KDE version."...

Lovely. So I either go KDE 4.1 or "live with it". Aaargh.
