heh.. of course they wouldn't, but expecting a user to figure out that the way 
to configure it is to run a spell check on a document and click on configure 
is not a very logical set of steps to expect them to go through.

it would be like telling them that to configure kmail they first have to send 
a dummy email.

because if they only ever use konsole as a part in, say, konqi or kdevelop how 
will they configure it? tell them to open up konsole itself? there ought to 
be a place users can go to configure such parts in a central place.

and that central place ought to be specifically for kpart configuration. IMHO.
