If it does not show any context menu then i would say your setup is broken.

If there is scrollable text (history) in the konsole then it scrolls the 
displayed text. Otherwise, konsole send the up/down key events to the 
application letting it handle it the way it usually dies. This is what you 
saw... where bash (or whatever shell you use) received the up/down key events 
and accordingly displayed command history.
