On my computer the problem happened because /etc/fstab contained mountpoints that used UUIDs just as recommended, in fact as set up by the Kubuntu installer and not messed with by me. The problem is that a byte-for-byte copy of a partition has the same UUID as the original partition, even if it is on a different physical drive. Not surprisingly this causes general confusion, especially among Ubuntu's bug-closer crew, who can't wrap their minds around the fact that UUIDs don't quite live up to their name.
