Ups, the patch has a sideeffect which I think we all missed: It is not 
possible anymore selecting more than one file in e. g. Kate or KWrite.

Reverting commit 836195 from the 4.1 branch brings back the original 
functionality.  You write in your mail that included the patch: 
"The second thing is that pressing return on the current item does not emit 
fileSelected() but fileHighlighted(). I'm wondering if this was an accident 
or done on purpose. See attached kdiroperator-fileSelected.patch."

It seems like this has been done on purpose to make it possible selecting more 
than one file. May I revert this patch on KDE 4.1 and trunk? Well it will be 
too late for 4.1.0 I assume, but it's for sure no showstopper if the fix will 
be in 4.1.1...
