Due to the KDE4 rewrite, KDE4/Kubuntu Intrepid's kfontinst is unlikely to have this same crash, and at the least the rewrite would change the stacktrace of a similar crash. Due to these reasons I'm closing this bug as fixed. Please report if you have any problems with font installation in Kubuntu Intrepid or KDE4 in general.
