IMHO listbox is much worse than listview. Listview has quite reasonable
handling, whereas listbox is definitely busted.

I totally agree (I had the same kind of mess with the profile dialog in Konqueror).

But this has nothing to do with the problem at hand IMHO, since it's
about a QListView, and about Extended selection mode, not Single.
IMHO the behaviour in Konqueror is fine. But the problem is simply
that KDesktop often takes focus unintentionnally (just clicking between 
two windows, without really thinking about the desktop icons), and then
Return has unwanted side effects.
