I do not believe this is a good solution. I should not have to sacrifice the 
performance of the system because Konqueror does not shutdown properly. I 
tend to blame it on the nspluginviewer as many many times I have closed 
konqueror and the nspluginviewer is still running and sucking up 25% or so of 
my cpu. If I leave it it will run forever. If I kill it, konqueror crashes. 
Regardless, whenever I reboot or shutdown and come back to KDE upon login I 
am presented with the session crash dialog asking me to reload the previous 
instance or ignore. Rather than continue to deal with this all the time, I 
just clicked the do not ask me again. 
I don't mind it remembering my crashed session, but I tend not to like any of 
my web history stored anywhere, and to me, this is a security breach!

I searched for a bug thread about this but I could not find one.
