This bug was fixed in the package kubuntu-notification-helper - 14.04ubuntu8

kubuntu-notification-helper (14.04ubuntu8) trusty; urgency=medium

  * Catch another source of PermissionError in whoopsie-upload-all,
    this should now handle all sources of permission errors LP: #1281884
  * Implement simple unique application tracking by registering on dbus,
    this prevents multiple invocation triggers. Also, the long
    upload timeout is less concerning with a unique application.
    + Depends on python3-dbus
  * Upload timeout reduced from 30 minutes to 15 minutes. This is just as
    arbitrary a value, but really 15 minutes should be more than enough time
    for most systems. With a 30 minute timeout and a bad connection one
    can easily get into a situation where upload-all is running 24/7, reducing
    the timeout improves this at least slightly.
  * Try apport report add_*() and except (OSError, SystemError, ValueError) to
    prevent unhandled exceptions when the system runs out of disk space for
    example LP: #1292766
