Yes that is the problem. Any possibility for users not owning that $DISPLAY 
to automatically save and restore their konqueror sessions?  (I am
considering a script:  1) login; 2) start konqueror using the last saved
session 3) save the current konqueror session on exit)

That appears to be a too heavy solution, since more window managers should
be started on the same machine. I am wrong?

Thank you
