Are you missing sleep again? =:^)  IIRC that's what you blamed for 
forgetting to mention the kde version last time.  (Why do I remember the 
reason you gave in the followup, but not the version you mentioned in the 
same mail!?  Sadly, my brain must not be Spock-like enough. <sigh>  Of 
course, "Logic dictates that I ask anyway, even if I did remember it or 
look it up, as you might have upgraded since then." ...)

Meanwhile, I see the same behavior here (on kde-4.7.90 aka 4.8-beta2), 
except that since I have dolphin set as the default file manager, I can't 
easily check what it does when moving to a dir other than the initial dir, 
since that opens a dolphin window instead.
