=:^)  Mine too, tho I've gone thru and cleaned it up from time to time.  
Yes, the fresh-user thing's a very good idea to try.

Meanwhile, that you can see the favicons reappear in the cache when you 
visit the page again, but konqueror fails to display them, sounds to me 
like it might be one of two things, either something related to the recent 
image-cache (graphics not browser related) issues in early kde-4.5 that 
were at least partially fixed in 4.5.3 and 4.5.4, or some other sort of 
race condition, where konqueror tries to display the icon before it's 
actually there, and then doesn't try again after it's in the cache.

I'd try the fresh user thing, and then check bugzilla for related bugs, 

As I said, I'm running 4.5.4 here too, on Gentoo, and haven't noticed the 
issue, so it doesn't appear to be hitting everyone.  Hopefully it's 
something in your local user config and you can resolve it there.
