view mode

I had this problem too and eventually traced it to having more than one konq 
window open when I saved the view profile. After closing everything even any 
web pages I started up my home icon and set the window as I required 
including the size and then saved the profile "file management", closed the 
window and ended the session. Since then it has retained the settings even 
when I pop a cd or dvd in. 
Do note that hidden folders etc will not be displayed in the right pane in 
text mode. That suits me though I just switch to icon view if I want to 
access them.
