Yes, it is a known problem. I recommend not to upgrade but if you did, you may
do the following to fix it:

1) Add unstable to /etc/apt/sources.list:

# echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

2) aptitude (or apt-get) update
# aptitude update

3) Upgrade installed binary packages from kde4libs source package:

# aptitude --without-recommends install '?source-package(kde4libs)~i'/unstable

In fact, you only need libkdecore5 4:4.4.4-1 to fix this but installing this
package alone will cause dependency issues. It is harder to achieve the same
effect with apt-get, but you may try:

# apt-cache showsrc kde4libs | sed -n '/^Binary:/ { s/^Binary:\s\+//; s/,/\n/g; p}' | sort -u | xargs 
dpkg-query -l | grep ^ii | awk '{print $2}' | xargs apt-get -y -t unstable install

4) Remove unstable from sources.list.

We are working to fix this in a proper way but it probably won't be easy
or fast solution.
