Is the test script set executable? Trying to run such a script here
returns a similar but slightly different (probably kde version
differences) here, if the script isn't executable.
If it's executable, it evidently runs, but without the --hold or
--noclose options, it happens too fast to see the output. That's another
hint that the script isn't executable and thus not running, and you're
getting bash (which doesn't close) instead.
If you don't want to mark it executable, run bash as the executable,
giving it the script name, like so:
/usr/bin/konsole -e bash -c ~/test
Again, without the konsole --hold/noclose option, it doesn't stick around
long enough to see, but it does seem to run, the same as if the script
was set executable.
