If you want this to be fixed, try upgrading again such a mga1 config to mga2,
but with the following commands:

urpmi --bug $N --auto-select -vv --debug 2>&1 | tee LOG.kde
tar cfa ${N}{.tar.xz,}

Then you can open a bug report, attaching both the log file and the
bug_kde-upgrade.tar.xz tarball.

I guess you keep a backup or a snapshot of your VM?
