So, it seems I have run into a bug. I hop on IRC and get pointed to #leonov. Stephen Hermann was more than willing to point me to a new updated tarball that fixed the bug. I installed the newer tarball and everything worked (I have run into a couple bugs that I am trying to track down, I haven't done much in Python before, as well as KDE, so it should be fun :-)).
Congrats to the Leonov team! I know this is an "early adopters" release, but I think this will turn out to be an awesome app. I hope I can help out!
