New information about this issue. This only happens when you switch from plasma-netbook to plasma-desktop.
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1) Do a fresh install of Kubuntu in a netbook which loads plasma-netbook interface by default.
2) Switch to plasma-desktop interface via System Settings -> Workspace Behaviour -> Workpace -> Workspace Type.
3) After plasma-desktop is loaded, open Kickoff menu.
4) You will see a not functional Kopete launcher in favorites.

(Note that also you will have only one virtual desktop where having two virtual desktops is the expected default for Kubuntu plasma-desktop, and also minimize button is not there in Kwin ).

The "Kopete" entry should probably be an "Instant Messenger Contacts" one.

Comparing kubuntu-settings/netbook/share/config/kickoffrc and kubuntu-settings/desktop/share/config/kickoffrc, there are more differing entries (e.g. Kmail vs. Kontact), which might not be intended...

This bug was fixed in the package kubuntu-settings - 1:13.10ubuntu4

kubuntu-settings (1:13.10ubuntu4) saucy; urgency=low

  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * Update netbook's kickoffrc to use KTP instead of Kopete (LP: #1090490)
  * Add desktop/kdedrc deactivating phonon device change windows entirely.
    This is going a bit further than the upstream change as it also
    deactivates the device window on ALSA setups. From a Kubuntu UX POV
    the window should however not be shown ever, the fact that only people
    who have opted out of PA will get it does not really improve its
    uselessness. (Also see kde-runtime b691686f)
  * Remove desktop/config/KPackageKit; not used and I wonder how that ever

  [ Jonathan Riddell ]
  * Add kubuntu-logo-full.png and kcm-about-distrorc
  * Add desktop/share/apps/muon-discover files to customise muon
