Encode the user's search query in utf-8 when passing it to the URI filter.

 void KURIFilterData::init( const QString& url )
     m_iType = KURIFilterData::UNKNOWN;
-    m_pURI = url;
+    m_pURI = KURL( url, 106 /* utf-8 */ );

This looks very wrong indeed, for any usage of KURIFilter that is about the local filesystem.
I guess Malte was trying to make gg:foo encode "foo" as utf8.
But now that we stored the typedString as is (in a QString), what about doing this
in the ikws filter only, once we know that it's going to be a query?
