Bad - Kubuntu borked in the first place, after the upgrade the system wouldn't 
even boot.
Need a stable system right now (good thing I completely backed up 8.04), more 
tinkering postponed, if not cancelled (considering migrating to debain lenny, 
can't take canonicals bold moves like upstart tripping over their own feet).

I'll post my results should I change my mind and succeed in upgrading, tho it 
rather looks like a reinstall at the moment which I have about as much a head 
for as for a nazi row. (I haven't reinstalled since 2003 and I'm not willing 
to start now.)
