I stopped using separate profiles for FileManagement & WebBrowsing 
because I found it a pain, so I don't really have experience with it.

Have you tried:

	kfmclient newTab <URL> "text/html"


There is also a command: "kstart" that allows you to specify other 
parameters such as the DeskTop number.  I don't know if that would help 
or not.

I suspect that you are going to need a script and some DCOP to make this
