I've asked on irc our kde experts:

15:26:34 < siretart> pusling: IIRC you are involved with kde
                     packaging. could you perhaps have a look over at
                     #523888? Should that bug be reassigned to some kde
                     package? if yes, to which?

15:29:01 < ana> siretart: guy is using a package that is not longer in
                the archive (kicker from kde3) with a version that never
                made testing/lenny

15:30:29 < siretart> ana: and this is causing problems?

15:32:11 < ana> siretart: well, kicker is in the archive, but not that
                version, i can check with kde from testing, hold on

15:38:18 < ana> siretart: it does not happen in _pure_ testing with kde3
                and i just realized kdebase 3.5.10 migrated so same
                version than the guy in kde unreproducible, different
                mplayer version though

15:41:15 < ana> siretart: if you reassing to kicker, the only we can do
                is close it as "fixed in unstable", it does not exist in
                kde4 :)

I'm therefore reassinging this bugreport to kicker, but since I expect
it to be removed from the archive soon, this bugreport should be closed
at that time as well. At least as I understand the matter here.
