Yes, some bugs belong in the KDE bug tracker. Read more here:
"To increase the efficiency of our bug trackers, only serious upstream
bugs will be tracked at Launchpad. This way developers will be able to
efficiently track distribution-specific issues without being lost in a
sea of upstream bugs."
It is indeed not easy to file bugs for the KDE part of Kubuntu. KDE
bugfix releases are made every month. New bugs are also introduced with
those releases, so you have to install from PPA to receive both the
fixes and the new bugs. Reporting with ubuntu-bug does not support PPA.
They have to be files manually with kubuntu-ppa as package. Most of them
should also be reported upstream.
