[PATCH] Set --workdir when executing a service with konsole

This stems from bug #162183 (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162183)

Basically, when a script is executed by KLauncher using a .desktop file that 
has Terminal=1 set and a working path set, it does a chdir then executes a 
terminal program.

This is fine with most terminal programs, but konsole ignores the parent 
process working directory, and instead goes straight to your home directory.  
The --workdir option can be used to change this behaviour, as KToolInvocation 
does.  However, KLauncher uses KRun which has its own logic for constructing a 
terminal command line.

The attached patch fixes this, but I'm not sure whether including another 
macro (%w for working directory) is kosher.  Is it OK, and if so should I 
backport it to 4.1?
