I wonder if it is a language setting that is causing the problem. That is, it is something wrong with a KDE 4 setting that comes into effect after you login using KDE 4, but would not affect things when you are not in KDE. I only say this as I use a US keyboard, but use an international English setting and have encountered similar problems when I have installed and re-logged in. Some how the settings have been changed when you updated and they took effect when you log out and re-login into KDE.

I would consider deleting the .kde4 folder in your home directory. This is where your settings for KDE are stored. Then you will have to set things up again.

Mouse settings.

Haven't used Ubuntu in forever but could it not be a mouse setting error in xorg.conf if ubuntu still uses it. Might change to the IMPS/2 under mouse for protocol.
