With a fresh user I got different problems. Seems to be very broken 
the favicon stuff in konqui.

There is a bug there (153049) and it pretty describes my problems with 
favicons. If a favicon is not in the bookmark list it shows up fine, 
otherwise sometimes it shows, sometimes not. In the bookmarklist  
favicons are visible sometimes only if the mouse is over the icon, 
sometimes it is only visible if the mouse is not above the icon.

As long as you don't delete icons from your favicon cache you will not 
notice it.
