While I haven't found a way to make KDE use the thumb keys directly, I 
currently use `imwheel` to just send the Alt+left (or right) keys to 
konqueror/dolphin. I know it's just a workaround, but I guess it's better than 

The relevant lines of my ~/.imwheelrc are:

None,   Thumb1, Alt_L|Left
None,   Thumb2, Alt_L|Right

None,   Thumb1, Alt_L|Left
None,   Thumb2, Alt_L|Right

Some additional information that may be useful: I have a Logitech MX510 and 
the thumb buttons are recognized as buttons 8 and 9 by X (mouse configured 
using evdev driver)
