This bug was fixed in the package kdelibs - 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-1ubuntu6

kdelibs (4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-1ubuntu6) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Add kubuntu_98_fix_khc_invocation.diff to invoke khelpcenter's exectuable
    directly instead of trying to access it via DCOP or start it using it's
    service file. Both are not available without KDE 3's kdebase (LP: #310135)
