Hi Anne. It looks like it may be a distro specific thing for some strange 

I tried it on my Archlinux, and F8 installs. Open Konqueror webbrowser, change 
view to treeview, and save. Open Konqueror file browser, and tree view shows 
ok. Close Konqueror webbrowser, then reopen it, click on the "House", 
treeview still shows, which is what Doc is looking for.

By contrast on F9, Kubuntu GG 7.10, and Kubuntu HH 8.04, I see this.

Open Konqueror webbrowser, click on "House", change view to treeview, and 
save. Open Konqueror filebrowser, and tree view is displayed. Close both. 
Open Konqueror webbrowser, click on "House", and icon view is displayed. Open 
Konqueror filebrowser, and treeview is still there.

So at least on F9, and both Kubuntu's, the change IS being saved, which is 
confirmed by Konqueror filebrowser continuing to display the tree view, but 
for some reason Konqueror the webbrowser when reopened, and clicking on the 
"House", has gone back to displaying the icon view.

Webbrowser displaying filebrowser:             icon view displayed
Filebrowser                                          tree view displayed

Very weird.
