I'm not the OP, but I've tried what you suggested above.
First make sure that there is no session of konqueror running. To be sure,
on a command line execute "killall konqueror" a few times until it says
that no process was killed. Then open ~/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc and
find the section "[MainView Settings]" without the quotes. Add it if it
does not already exist. Add "SaveViewPropretiesLocally=true" without the
quotes under the above mentioned section.
Apart from a little typo, where Propreties should read Properties, this
solution to the problem works fine.
I've tried this on Kubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04, where D.R. "Doc" Evans was having
a problem, and the solution above works like magic.
Thanks Kishore for the fix.
