Additional info:
Starting konqueror and switching to the file browsing profile gives this 
console output :
# konqueror
kio (KMimeType): WARNING: KServiceType::offers : servicetype 
inode/directory not found
kio (KMimeType): WARNING: KServiceType::offers : servicetype 
inode/directory not found
konqueror: WARNING: KonqFactory::createView : no factory
konqueror: WARNING: Profile Loading Error: View creation failed

I'm using kde 3.2.2
