I see... but you'll get the same thing if you change the default search 
engine. Try it - just type 'kde' into the url bar after making the 
change. Mozilla Firefox is doing the same thing - it's using the 
"Google I'm feeling lucky" search to guess at which site to load. 
Firefox does not have an internal probing feature - it simply hands off 
to Google.
