 The problem is that sending of the startup notification data is done only 
before starting konqueror, but after finding out that konqueror is the thing 
that has to be started in order to handle the URL. KRun needs to be changed 
to send the starting desktop sooner. I didn't get to this yet, and I'm not 
sure what exactly needs to be changed (e.g. the kio dialog should be also 
considered part of the startup).

 It isn't. This small problem has been there since the beginning.
