Hi Shane

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier -- i planned on looking at 
this this weekend then i got distracted with other things.

Konsole has changed between 3.4.1 and 3.4.3 -- in 3.4.3 it uses screen 
-- so for 3.4.3 each Konsole session is in fact a screen session.

I'm attaching my own konsolerc and .screenrc. konsolerc goes in 
$HOME/.kde-3.4.3/share/config/konsolerc and .screenrc goes in 

In .screenrc, you will see the following lines (starting on line 25):

# make the shell in every window a login shell
#shell -$SHELL

Could you please uncomment the line '#shell -$SHELL' and let me know 
if that makes a difference.
