I have, literally, no idea how this is possible.  The binary code, and
the kernel, used for those two distributions should be bit for bit
identical, since the repositories don't duplicate.

That about sums it up.  I suggest you take it to Launchpad in the hope
that the package maintainers can make sense of this...

(Remotely possibly, something in the KDE desktop startup is configuring
 some audio or video hardware in a way that XFCE doesn't; I know KDE has
 some awareness of video stuff...)
