I see.  So, there's something wrong with konsole or in my
environment.  "Mark taskbar entry" doesn't seem to have
any effect.  At least, nothing happens with "echo -e '\a'".

By the way, is "taskbar" a synonym of "tab bar" of konsole?
At first, I wondered whether it might mean the task bar
at the bottom of the screen.  But, then you say "the tab
flashes" . . .
