I did what you said. But when I open Konqueror from the "Home" icon on 
kdesktop, there's no shell involved and then I don't get the desired result 
on PATH.
My goal here is to be able to run some scripts I have in ~/bin from konqueror 
using the "Execute Shell Command..." entry in the Tools menu, which runs them 
with the current listed directory as pwd. But even when I could just put the 
entire path to the script in the field given, some of those scripts refer to 
other script also in ~/bin simply by their names, not the full path. That's 
why I would like all my KDE (and X perhaps) applications to have ~/bin on 
their PATH environment variable.
