[kde-linux] Choice of RealAudio plugin and application in Konqueror

I have some difficulty getting RealAudio streams to play successfully in 
Konqueror. (Mandriva 2005LE, KDE 3.3.2, Konqueror 3.3.2)

1. If I visit
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?radio4/makinghistory ,
the audio plays as a plugin, apparently using kaffeine.  Unfortunately 
konqueror invariably crashes afterwards, so I want to get it to use a 
different plugin, nphelix.so, in the hope that it will no longer crash.  
The konqueror plugin config already shows nphelix.so is available. 
(nphelix.so works well in firefox.)

How do I get konqueror to use the nphelix.so plugin?

2. Alternatively, how could I get the stream to open in a standalone 
application (eg kaffeine) instead of as a plugin?  (That is what konqueror 
3.2 did in Mdk 10.0, and I like that behaviour.)

3. If I visit
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/science/rams/humanalien.ram ,
the stream plays successfully in kaffeine. 

How could I get this to play in eg helixplayer instead?
