The first problem we face now is round-robin DNS. Imagine you connect to 
FTP site You select a file to copy and execute. Another 
kio_ftp is launched, connects to "" and asks for the file.

However, what may happen is that you connected to a different server and 
the file isn't available there, at that path. The same goes for HTTP wrt 
to sessions.

IMO, those are badly designed sites.

There was also something about resolver failures, but I can't remember 
anymore what the problem was. I am sure there is a bug open for this, but 
it cannot be fixed until KDE4.
