Hmm, kfmexec's sole purpose in life _is_ to download remote files for apps which can't handle remote files.

So the real problem seems to be that kfmexec is called in the first place.
konqueror.desktop says Exec=konqueror %U .... where does the konqueror %f come from?
(%f is default, so this could also come from Exec=konqueror somewhere).

You said "open with / konqueror" - is that the menuitem or do you type konqueror in KOpenWith?
Do you have a file in $KDEHOME with Exec=konqueror?
