It is not konsole itself that loads the variables from your profile. It is the
shell that console executes (probably bash). When started the shell executes
its initialization scripts (.profile, .bash_profile, .bashrc, see man page of

variables set for different konsole sessions you could create several
initialization files and then set konsole's session (Configure Konsole ->
Sessions -> Execute) to execute the command 'bash --rcfile .my_init_file1'.
See the INVOCATION section in bash manual for details on other options of
