This is seriously why i don't use konqueror at work. We use short names 
for *ALL* of our internal machines, using regexp to fix that is hence 
not an option. Sure i could write http://name, but in all other 
programs and browsers i can just type the name so i often forget to do 
that. This is the only reason really that i switched to mozilla in my 

If anyone think shortnames are a poweruser feature then i suggest they

don't even know the full name for "home" or "intranet" :)
