All Konqueror knows is what the file system tells it.  So, it isn't a Konqueror 
problem.  If you can't do it from the command line, then Konqueror won't do it 

In *NIX, all files are equal -- folders and links are just special files so you 
can not have two entries with the same name in a folder (directory).  Sorry 
about that.
