I just realized something. This is the intended behavior. "smb:" cannot be 
filtered by any of the current filter plugins because it is an invalid format 
of a supported protocol (same thing will happen for "ftp:", "http:" or any 
other protocol supported by KDE). Were you expecting a search with the 
default search engine ? 

Anyways, in the this case the filtering code returns a status of UNKNOWN since 
it was unable to filter the URL. Konqueror's input filtering code, however, 
does not properly deal with such status code. Attached is a patch to address 
that issue.

BTW, if there is a problem with how invalid formats of supported protocols are 
handled now, I have one possible suggestion. The protocol description file 
should indicate the valid formats it supports. For example, smb.protocol 
might have the following entry:


Of course this will require additional code in KProtocolInfo, but that is a 
trivial matter. I think this way we leave it up to the protocol designers to 
tell us what formats are acceptable so that we can properly deal with 
filtering specific protocols. I suspect "smb:" will not be the only issue 
that will have such problems...
