Yes, we do unfortunatly have all too many problems. What version are
Reporting them to bugs.kde.org does help us, you can speed a bit by
following the link at Help->Report Bug (there's also kbugbuster which
may help, I've not used it).

This is a known problem.

Thanks for your feedback, always appreciated.
I've sent this to uml-devel since that's where e-mails like this
