If it is a regression in the beta, it could be that nobody else has tested 
this yet. I.e. other people testing the beta might be using Konqueror, but 
maybe not with profiles or not loading profiles through commandline options.

I'd say this qualifies for a bug report even if nobody else has experienced it 
so far.
