SuSE, openSUSE SUSE Linux used to be a very KDE-centric distribution. Then Novell came around, bought SUSE and Ximian, and slowely but surely they turned the now-openSUSE distribution into effectively a GNOME-centric distribution with KDE as its sidekick. The openSUSE community, however, doesn't appear to be particularly happy with KDE being a sidekick.

The reduction in distributor commitment to KDE has made me sad for years now.

That's totally false. Distributor support was not reduced, but rather shifted.
Pardus is a relatively new distro that fully supports KDE. Western users may not have heard about it. It's a Turkish distro. Several people work full time on it.
KDE also has a great reputation on Arch with KDEmod.

I have had trouble with bugs under Kubuntu's KDE but I'm hesitant to blame too many of these on the distro given the hacked-about nature of my ancient install.

No, it really is Kubuntu to blame. Kubuntu has the buggiest KDE packages I know of. No Kubuntu release ever shipped with non-broken translation files for KDE. KDE also is less stable there.
