I have been wanting to take a look at 9.10, but being a KDE user, I
have heard rumblings on the Interwebs that Kubuntu had the type of
problems to which you are eluding to in this post.
Have you tried apt-getting kubuntu-desktop on your Ubuntu install? Or
is it the same packages that you would get using kubuntu?

I don't know what you mean by well-supported. I have been running it
for about 6 years, supporting kde3 on my family's machines and kde4 +
compiz on mine. When I have problems (which is rare), I either post
here, or I go to kde.org.
