Ahhh... Good thing you mentioned that. I found the problem. It is konqueror's 
attempt to detect the mimetype that was causing this issue. The 
"cross-domain" meta-data needs to be added to BrowserRun::scanFile and 
possibly to KRun::scanFile as well. That fixes my problem. 

However,  after several hours of investigation, I am completely dumb founded 
about how retrieving a URL works when it is a result of the user typing into 
the location bar. Konquerror makes the original request. Determines the 
content-type using BrowserRun which puts the job on hold. Konqueror uses the 
mime-type information to invoke the appropriate part/view/app to handle the 
request, in our case KHTMLPart. KHTMLPart then invokes openURL which makes 
another KIO request I guess using the io-slave on hold. This is where it gets 
interesting. I see the meta-data set by KHTMLPart::openURL getting all the 
way down to SlaveBase, grand-parent of kio_http :) However, so far as I can 
tell no re-request is made by kio_http! Even if "Use Cache" is completely 
disabled! I presume this is by design to avoid duplicating each request, 
right ? This behavior also results in all the meta-data sent by KHTMLPart to 
be completely useless (ignored).  For example, doing View->Document 
Information absolutely shows nothing here. Hmm...
