Actually, you have stumbled upon a serious bug in KDE.  If you set it to 
use a browser other than the KHTML part for Konqueror then it will also use 
that browser to open an HTML file. :-(

This appears to be a logical consequence of the two level configuration for 
the MIME type: 'text/html'.  You first need to select Konqueror as the 
application and then configure Konqueror to use the KHTML part as a plugin.

You should be able to choose a browser for URLs starting with 'http' while 
still using Konqueror to open an HTML file which resides on your system or 
local network.
