I found the reason for this. Nothing to do with konq, I had a file 
system corruption on /opt (xfs) during installation of oxygen.
I didn't notice it cause my system continued to work. Only the next day, 
after rebooting, a few weird symptoms appeared.
I repaird the fs with xfs_repair and re-installed kdelibs3.
And now "I'm back" as Schwarzy would say.
Thanks for reaching out.
