I'm turning this email into a bug report, since this seems to be a
packaging problem.

The relevant kubuntu patch seems to be this one [1] and it seems it
has been removed from the 4.5 beta packages, with a changelog message
indicating it has been fixed upstream, although I see no
plasma-netbook.desktop in their plasma-netbook.install file.

I don't fully understand though how this is going to work when one has
both plasma-desktop and plasma-netbook installed... are they both
going to be autostarted? Also, why does plasma-netbook autostart when
plasma-desktop is installed and a "netbook" form factor is selected in
systemsettings? (I had tried that once)

Have you read the referenced bug report (#584905) [1] till the end before 
opening a new one? It has been fixed in 4.4.5. If the fix does not work, 
please reopen #584905.
