So while I'm not complaining about "kubernaut" any more than I'd complain about a word like "butterfly" or "cranberry", it did stick out like a sore thumb to me initially because I'm so familiar with the component parts.

Native English speakers don't generally get confused by "butterfly" not having anything obvious to do with "butter", so I'll eventually get used to "kubernaut" not literally meaning a "helmsman sailor".
