KLauncher problem: can't pass parameters using dcopstart

I tried 
"dcopstart konqueror --geometry 400x200+100+100"
but it doesn't work.
The reason lies in klauncher.cpp in start_service():

   if ((urls.count() > 1) && !service->allowMultipleFiles())
      // We need to launch the application N times. That sucks.
      // We ignore the result for application 2 to N.
      // For the first file we launch the application in the
      // usual way. The reported result is based on this
      // application.
      QStringList::ConstIterator it = urls.begin();

i.e. both parameters are interpreted as url's, altough they are only plain 
parameters which should simply be passed to the app.
Isn't this simply to much magic ?
