Huh? No problem here.

Here it auto-selects my full name, but certainly doesn't delete it.

There is no such option in the right-click menu in my konqueror. Did you
really mean in konqueror?

I've never seen any of these issues in either Mandriva or Fedora, and I've
been using KDE4 since 4.0, so it's obviously not a regular bug. Sorry it
doesn't help you much, though.
The only thing that I can think of is to wonder whether the keyboard auto-
repeat speed is causing your problems. I do recall that in one version, some
time back, I had to slow down the keyboard repeat start quite considerably as
it was causing some weird issues.
